Due to an allergic reaction to my flu and pneumonia shots I agreed to take a 6 day regimen of steroids. When my Creative Coordinator – Marnie Long, asked me for my LinkedIn articles I told her my brain was foggy and not clicking to create a quality piece. I said…”Marnie, you’re going to need to write the articles this week – please.” And, so she did Thanks Marnie! Motivational speaker Jim Rohn said “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”
Whether this is true or not, he makes an interesting point. Who you surround yourself with can have a huge impact on your success. It’s so important to surround yourself with successful people, mentors and people in your life that have your back.
This is a good time to check your circle.
· Who sucks your energy and who gives you energy?
· Where are you lacking support?
· Do you have mentors that are ‘smarter’ than you?
· Do you have someone to be accountable to?
If not, it’s time to edit your circle.
There’s no better coach or mentor than someone who has already achieved goals similar to yours. Connect with people who are living and creating a version of your dream already. There are plenty of free podcasts, TEDtalks and motivational speakers out there to get you motivated.
My current favorite podcast to search is Tim Ferriss. He has interviewed hundreds of peak performers that excel in their given field. Go for a walk, listen to a podcast that resonates with you, get motivated!
If you are looking for a mentor and coach, Sherry McCool would love to teach you the Success Formula to help you define your goals, implement your action plans, set commitments and be accountable.
There are several programs starting soon. See which one would be a great fit for you. www.successlooksgreatonyou.com/programs
