“Surround Yourself with Supportive People” is the fifth of seven essential truths I have incorporated into my daily practices. Now, because I surround myself with those who know my heart, my dreams, and my desires, I live a healthy, fulfilling and blessed life. You can too.
It’s been said that you are a sum total of the five closest people you hang around. The first time I heard this I was floored. My circle of friends was hardly a dream team, nevermind who those people were. The truth is, I always felt so lucky when anyone wanted to be my friend, I had no idea it could rub off! It being, you know… their defects of character. Which, when one translates this predicament literally, as I first did, it’s easy to miss the actual point: Who I am becoming in your presence? Hence, we would be well-advised to surround ourselves with supportive people. Online and off.
