MLBD Episode 3: Peer Group

Are you a product of your environment?  A toxic environment is not a healthy place to live.  Take a quick inventory.  Who do you spend most of your time with?  Who are you communicating with on Facebook or Instagram?  Write down these names. 

Are all of these relationships serving you? Do these people have the same values?  If not, it may be time to make some changes.  The truth of the matter is that you simply cannot afford to spend time with those who doubt your mission or live in an environment that doesn’t serve your goals.  In actuality, you should aim to place yourself in an environment of those who are disciplined and may even be further along or more successful than you.  This will serve as a great source of wisdom, inspiration, and motivation.

When we shift who we choose to spend our time with, it often means that some connections will loosen.  Sometimes you may simply outgrow friends.  Remember that there is nothing wrong with this, as it is simply a part of life.  Some friends may not be growing at the same rate as you.  You’re not leaving your friends; they are choosing not to come with you on this journey.  Sometimes people come into your life for a reason, season, journey, or a lifetime.  Though sad, think about the alternative.  What if staying linked in their network kept you from your destiny?

Remember, who you spend time with is who you become.  Where do you want to go in your life?  Find the people who are already there and discover ways to spend time with them.  Perhaps this is through joining a networking event, attending events, or participating in a mastermind group.  

Take a few moments and Identify a few people that you would like to associate with.  Circle the top two names on your list and write down a date that you’re committed to connecting with them.  This is the first important step in becoming a product of the environment that you want to join.
