How to Surround Yourself with Quality People
Do you find it challenging to surround yourself with new, forward-pulling relationships without alienating existing relationships that really matter to you?
First of all, I have been there and experienced this myself many times, so trust me when I say, #YANA (you are not alone).
For some reason, we feel like it has to be an “EITHER OR” choice. Today, I’m here to tell you that you have another possibility–the “AND WITH.”
You see, my life has been a culmination of so many relationships. I’m a keeper…meaning if I meet you, I want to keep you in my life. Some of the biggest lessons I had to learn were that new relationships have an evolution, and that in order to maintain existing relationships, you can’t take them for granted and assume they are going to always be there.
As I was busy learning, evolving, growing and meeting new like-minded people on a similar personal development path, I forgot to NURTURE some of the most important relationships in my life. I thought I had to leave my existing community in order to adopt a new mindset and run with my new tribe of gladiators, change agents and unicorns. Boy was I wrong, and thankfully I managed to course correct most of them.
In this week’s episode, I share what I’ve learned about the various types of relationships that come into our lives (whether they’re for a reason, a season or a lifetime) as well as explain how relationships, like flowers, need to be WATERED, FED and NURTURED. Yes, you can build new relationships AND keep the ones that anchor and ground you.
Remember, this show is not a monologue. It’s a dialogue, and here we have courageous conversations I love, love, love reading your comments. So, please share below which part of this episode really hit home for you. Let me know what served your soul. Which relationship have you allowed to wither away on the vine? Which ones do you need to water or sprinkle some sunshine on? Which new relationships are you developing and growing?
This is your home. We are your tribe. And when I say I love you and I believe in you, it’s because in my heart I truly do.
