I have written about this topic earlier, but due to changes taking place in my life, I came to recognize once again how important it is to surround yourself with the right people.
“You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.” (Jim Rohn)
“Surround yourself with only people who are going to lift you higher!” (Oprah Winfrey)
What kind of people you spend most of your time with? Are they supporting you and your dreams, or are they pulling you back to the past where you no longer want to be? Are they motivating you or are they constantly questioning your desires?
I know it can be very hard to go against family members or good old ‘friends’, but if you want to be happy, you have to let go of some people. Sometimes it is the hardest thing in life to go in the opposite direction. To do the opposite of what your family or friends want you to do. You know what they expect you to do, but you know that it is not what you want. You want to live your dreams, but at the same time you don’t want to hurt them. It can be a real struggle.
I say, dare to follow your dreams! Eventually you are going to be happy, and sooner or later your family and old friends will be happy for you too! They will see you are thriving.
What is more important, once you open yourself up to meet people with similar interests and motivation to yours, then they are going to flow into your life. You just have to start somewhere. Take the first step towards your dreams. Just take the first step, and follow the next step. And so on.
You will meet positive and inspiring people. You will make new friends who are going to support you. You will surround yourself with the right people, and this will motivate you to live the life you want to live and to follow all your dreams!
