“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” ~Jim Rohn
Most of us have a deep down fear of not only disappointing others, but more accurately, having them abandon us if we change.
What I’ve learned is: relationships cannot be a default in your life. You can’t allow people to be around you just because they’ve been around you for years.
As Jim Rohn’s statement says above, you truly are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. Now, the BIG question is: does that statement inspire you or scare you?
If you’re committed to continually becoming your Truest, Best Self, then starting with your relationships – (especially your closest ones) - is the most important asset you can have in your worth toolkit.
The people around you are like mirrors reflecting back how YOU feel about you. Do you love what is being reflected back –or does it not feel good?
One of the most imperative steps on the Claim Your Worth!® journey is realizing how worthy you are of being surrounded by positive, inspiring and loving people.
Allow Lisa Merlow-Booth to give some great teaching around this concept in the this video.
This message is intended to remind you how powerful your relationships are, and how they truly do influence and shape our everyday life and future.
Here is your bumper sticker reminder: “It is a privilege to be in my inner circle and only those who treat me well, get to enter this circle and remain in this circle.”
Remember, cherish those who allow you to be in their inner circle and allow yourself to be cherished as well.
