“You are who you associate with. Look around at your five closest friends and that’s who you are. If you don’t want to be that person, you know what you gotta do.”– Will Smith
Your tribe, or the people you spend a majority of your time with, are important. So are the people and information you search for online. The voices and opinions of people close to you shape your reality. They either lift you up or bring you down. And the information you seek out and surround yourself with can easily bring you into a fearful place if you’re not careful.
Do you find yourself doing any of the following things?
- Do you spend time with people who drain your energy – either through negative language, sarcasm or criticism of you or others?
- Do your friends support you, no matter what?
- Have you surrounded yourself with people who have limited thinking?
- Do you spend time reading negative news or participating in gossip online?
- What groups do you find yourself spending time in – either in-person or online?
All of these behaviors above show that you may be associating with the wrong people or you aren’t fully supported by your tribe.
