Yesterday I was reminded of something really important.
Look at the people you’re surrounding yourself with. Who’s in your tribe?
Recently I’ve been struggling to move forward with some personal projects – there has been a lot of avoidance, procrastination and feeling the fear but NOT doing it anyway…
Last night I attended a networking event where I got talking to a life coach I’ve met before. She asked me how things have progressed since we last spoke and I confessed I was feeling all annoyed at myself and weirdly guilty for not having more to update her on.
She pointed out perhaps I hadn’t been surrounding myself with the right people and it was stopping me from moving forwards.
I think she’s right.
The last month has involved fewer networking events and business workshops, which means I haven’t been spending as much time with the kind of people who were advising, encouraging and inspiring me previously.
I NEED people. We all do.
But we need the right kind of people.
If you’re spending time with negative people who aren’t excited about your plans and ideas, you’re going to get demotivated. #byeFelicia
Equally, if your tribe is made up with people who are comfortable in their situation, not particularly ambitious or looking to make changes, you’re going feel stuck too. We need people who get our creative juices flowing and give us that boost of motivation!
We might be able to have it all, but we can’t do it all on our own.
I’m at my best when I’m surrounded by people who push, encourage and inspire me. I feel happier and excited and I make things happen. So, I’ve decided to spend the next few weeks reconnecting with the people I really want in my tribe and growing it.
