I believe that each and every connection we make with anyone, holds within it the opportunity of a lesson, or to be reminded of something previously learned and forgotten and the opportunity to practice what we have already learned.
Everyone has something they can teach us, or they can remind us of something we have already learned and have forgotten about.
That being said, it is important who we choose to connect with and spend time around. While there may be value added from EVERYONE in our lives, certain people have the ability to add more value than others. The environment we create has a lot to do with the people we choose and attract. It is important we protect our energy.
Would it make sense to walk up to someone who chooses to be lazy, unhealthy, and unhappy and ask them for advice on how to take action in our own life towards accomplishing goals which will benefit our health, finances, and our relationships?
It has been said that if we look at the 5 people we spend most of our time around we will see our future.
We can ask ourselves: Are the connections I work so hard on maintaining and enjoying beneficial or are they harmful? Do I want to eventually become exactly like the 5 people I spend most of my time with? Who is it I eventually would like to become more like, and what am I willing to do each and every day to make it happen?
Today’s challenge for myself: Today I will take a look at the people I spend the most of my time around and ask myself why I spend so much time around them. What do they benefit and have to gain by spending the majority of their time with me? What do I benefit and have to gain by spending the majority of my time around these particular people? Is there one or two other people I could spend a little more time with that would help me expand, grow, change, improve, or evolve in a way I want?
Some of the best advice I have come across on how to live life to the fullest is contained in Jim Rohn’s book, 7 STRATEGIES FOR WEALTH AND HAPPINESS.
