“Make a conscious effort to surround yourself with positive, nourishing, and uplifting people – people who believe in you, encourage you to go after your dreams, and applaud your victories.” – Jack Canfield
I used this quote in Chapter 6 – Circle of Success to drive home the point that WHO you allow into your life is critical to your level of success.
Reread the quote above – “applaud your victories” – this is a key piece of the puzzle. Do the people in your Circle of Success applaud your victories or do they get jealous and weird when you win?
I always say the most dangerous people you can allow into your life are those that view your success as their failure.
Reread the quote above – “encourage you to go after your dreams” – are the people in your Circle of Success pushing you to be, do and have more out of life? Are they pushing you to go after your dreams? Or are they holding you back because they are afraid if you grow and evolve you will no longer need them?
Read chapter 6 of The Overweight Mind to learn more about the importance of your Circle of Success. At the end of the chapter, I give you some specific action steps that will help you determine if your CIRCLE is strong or weak.
