Our lives will be determined by what we spend our time on and who we spend our time with. Make sure you surround yourself with people that will bring out the best you! From my experience and the experience of others, there are three types of people you should have in your circle.
1. The ultimate optimist. When times get tough or things don’t go as planned, when things are starting to get ugly and hairy – we all need that person we can call on to confirm that things will be more than fine and this too shall pass. Sometimes there is nothing more important than a few words of encouragement than can help get you back on your feet, make one more attempt, and take one more shot. Many times it is that final shot – when we are either the most desperate or the most inspired – that pushes us over the edge to victory. Victory is always near!
2. The connect. This person loves to help out and if they can’t help out they know someone who can! If we are looking to achieve greatness, to live our largest life, we know that we cannot do it on our own. We need people who are connected to our vision, other people and other opportunities.
3. The practical one. The old owl. We all need an owl to keep us grounded, especially when it feels like we are floating away in our own thoughts, hopes, dreams or even fears! It is easy to get lost when we are excited, overwhelmed or even doubtful. We need this person to help us get clear and take focused action. The owl does not discourage from huge or outlandish goals, but helps you remain calm and focused while taking your initial steps to greatness.
