Having an inner circle is important in life. It’s important to have friends, socialize, and just get out of our own ways sometimes. It keeps us sane, healthy and growing.
Having quality people in your life is important. Your inner circle is even more important. These aren’t just friends that you hang with on occasion to have a good time and watch a movie or just laugh, although this is important as well.
Your inner circle is a small group of people that really know you.
These are the people that know your strengths and your weaknesses and encourage you to be constantly growing and improving on your weaknesses. This inner circle is real and honest with you even when it sucks to hear. They build you up and push your dreams further.
I never truly understood the importance of this concept until I started to notice how my husband and I really did start to become like the people we hang out with the most.
Jim Rohn said: “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”
It’s true that you become like the 5 people you hang around the most. So, it’s important to make sure they’re good ones.
Now, I’m not saying that you should get rid of all of your friends that aren’t in line with the direction you’re heading in life. Not at all! I’m merely suggesting you take some time to really reflect on who you want to be and which friends or groups of people are going to help you become that person.
Another thing to think of with this concept is what you’re going to offer. This is the biggest factor! Because who we are and what we do is what attracts certain people to us.
So, what value are you bringing to those 5 around you? Are you building up or breaking down?
Something to think about for this week.
