Are you content with the people you hang out with?
You know the ones you socialize with on the phone, with social media, out and about – when we can again go out and about.
At the end of the interactions, do you feel more upbeat or more worried or maybe angry?
The people you surround yourself with – directly impacts your motivation. That’s why when I went back to college in my 40s, I surrounded myself with brilliant young people in their 20s so that I would do well. And it worked!
So, for your 60 second motivational minute for the week…
The people you surround yourself with have a tremendous impact on your mind. If you spend most of your time around negative people who always put you and your abilities down, you will never feel confident. If you also surround yourself with people who always complain – guess what – your motivation will be to complain too, not to work on your goals.
While we are all keeping physical distance, take an inventory of those you surround yourself with and keep contact to a minimum if they are a negative influence.
