A few years ago, when I started this journey towards my destiny, one of the clear messages that came through were,
“you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” If you wish to be successful surround yourself with people who are already where you wish to be, or who are working their way towards that place.
The words of Marcello, a Brazillian mentor, who I met in San Francisco also said, “If you wanna be successful you’ve gotta find the people. These people will pull you up. They will help you make your ideas happen.”
It takes time to build friendships. Relationships often require significant shared experiences, common interests, rapport and developed trust.
Starting out I remembered feeling disheartened as my circle were miles away, pre-occupied with their lives and interests, which I sensed on a deeper level, were different to my own.
When I applied myself to the visions in my mind and heart and began building the reality I foresaw, I began encountering many different people along the way. Some people have remained in my life, whilst others have not.
Last week I nearly gave up on my mission, tempted to jump ship to warmer climes and greater financial security. My wobble was catalysed by challenges in my relationships and challenges with myself.
In my time of need my friends came through – (thank you Joe, Kim and Luci) helping me see my fear – which has enabled me to reset myself, draw breath, ready to go again.
As well as pulling us up, our friends catch us when we fall.
Deep gratitude to my friends. You give me strength and hope.
