Show Me Your Friends I'll Show You Your Future!

Friendships can either hold you down or lift you if your the smartest one in your group then you probably need a new group! Throughout our lives we often hear from loved ones who are your friends, how do they impact your life?

I have a question for you, who are you spending your time with? your relationships can hold you down or lift you up if your the smartest one in your group you need a new group! Our expectations for friendships can change throughout life, for the most part, birds of a feather flock together.

If you choose to surround yourself in low vibrational one-sided unhealthy friendships you will feed off that energy.

believe that success is defined differently by each individual, however, the saying which I think agree with, you are the average of the 5 people you associate yourself with, if 5 of your closest friends are all negative nancies, chances are so are you.

The number one way to improve your future is to populate your life with high performers. Subconsciously we model the behaviour of the people we spend the most time with. If you are surrounded by victims or mediocre performers, etc you will mirror this bad behaviour.

EMOTIONAL VAMPIRE Always have non stop drama from Monday-Sunday, January - December, you become their Therapist. Meanwhile, when you are unable to provide for the 10000th time, they cut you off drastically, change their behaviour towards you, becoming passive-aggressive.

Another way to determine if a friendship benefits you is to ask yourself when was the last time they checked on you? If the friendship is based solely on their problems this is unhealthy, if you continue connecting with these types of individuals it may become detrimental to you. DREAM KILLERS No matter what these people will always have something negative to say about your dreams or passions, they will find fault in everything you do, maybe you want to find a cure for cancer they will still find fault. You never receive support or encouragement to become the best version of yourself, they prefer that you live a mediocre life.

 “The people we surround ourselves with either raise or lower our standards.They either help us to become the best version of ourselves or encourage us to become lesser versions of ourselves. We become like our friends. No man becomes great on his own. No woman becomes great on her own. The people around them help to make them great.
