They say that you are the average of the 5 people you associate with most in your life, and I would have to say that has run true in my life.
Spending time with people who inspire you, motivate you, and perhaps are a little higher on the scale of where you would like to be, encourages you to lift your game and pursue your dreams.
Like minded people reaffirm your path and what you are about. They help you to learn more in the field/s of what you are interested in and also help you learn what has helped them along their way, which is usually the little set backs they have grown from.
After spending a few hours in a room filled with people I had never met before but had come together for similar interests this weekend, I realized how powerful being in that space was.
All of a sudden you feel like you fit. All of a sudden you feel this feeling of being safe amongst a tribe. You feel supported, and that empowers you to be your true authentic self.
What a feeling!
I walked out of the event feeling “I need to do more to share my knowledge and gifts” that “I need to trust myself” more with what I do, and know that I am not alone in my way of thinking.
Your tribe is like your family, and the amazing thing about being a human being is that you can choose and have free choice in who you would like to spend your time with. You can choose to surround yourself with people that uplift you and support you in a loving way or you can choose to have those that are less inspiring. We know growth is hard for many people and change can be threatening to their comfort levels….but I know who I would rather be around 🙂
Don’t be afraid to lose some friends in your life. You are just making space for some awesomeness to come in.
Don’t be afraid to change locations, cities and workplaces. You are moving to places that are more aligned with where you want grow.
Don’t be afraid to reach out to people in your field you have never met before. They were once where you are now.
Don’t be afraid to join new groups, organizations, and communities. Like attracts like.
Your vibe attracts your tribe!
Make yourself available, put yourself out there, and don’t fear change. The right people will let you know if you are not doing enough to get where you want to go and nudge you accordingly to get you there.
One final note…don’t take advice from people who have never changed careers, pursued their dreams or faced their fears. Want to move in life? Then get with the movers and shakers of this world and a few dreamers…we all need those in our lives.
