“Surround yourself with only people who are going to lift you higher” Oprah Winfrey.

There are a lot of naysayers out in the world, a lot of people who want to bring others down, lack the belief in you out of fear they are not living their life of truth. Call them vampires, energy suckers, tall poppy people, whatever label you may put to these people be sure to NOT have them in your life. Wish them well and move on.

I wish nobody harm or hatred, I will not use my energy in that way. However I will not put my energy in feeding them either.

As you step outside your comfort zone and grow your business you will

  • grow and evolve
  • become in line with your true mission
  • start designing life on your terms
  • have financial success

Just note – I can almost guarantee there will be some that don’t like that. And that’s ok. Just don’t let them stop you living your truth.

Throughout my life I have had people come and go. Some are still in my life and always will be. Some have entered, left and come back again. I believe people gravitate to us and we gravitate to others for a reason, season or lifetime. At particular stages of our life different people appear for varying reasons. This has been very evident to me over the years.

A number of years ago someone said to me that you are the average of the five people closest to you, so choose wisely of who you are hanging around with. I contemplated this. Reflected on this and deconstructed what it really meant to me. We are all a reflection of each other, and in many ways like attracts like. If we have negative, blame the world, full of excuses people in our life then perhaps we need to look in our own mirror and check in to see if that is what we are.

I look at the people I hang around with and I see positivity, love, support, drive, care, determination, self-belief, ownership of their actions and so much more. I can only hope and trust that is a reflection of me too.

Having the right team around you is critical to your success.
