On your Inner Circle… June 18, 2018 by Megan ShaughnessyWho is in your “circle”? Your circle is your closest friends, family, teammates, etc. that you choose to spend time with. Every successful person has their own private “Inner Circle,” a person or group of people who inspire, coach, motivate, encourage, and propel them to the greatness you see from the outside looking in. This is not your Facebook friends, or Instagram followers, or even all the people who “like” your posts. It is that intimate inner circle that provides the foundation of who you are. I can remember 3 years ago a time when my inner circle was not filled with the best people. I was reflecting their behaviors, second guessing myself, and not growing and becoming who I was meant to be. I had to evaluate and make some tough decisions. I did, and found my life changed completely in a short period of time immediately after that. I never imagined that would happen, or that my life would be so incredibly positive and REAL. It is a period of time I think about often. Many of you may find yourself feeling down, not believing you are worthy, and just not feeling joy. I get it. I have been there too. Here are 8 questions to ask yourself about the people you spend time with. Answer them truthfully and adjust accordingly. After all, we are all destined for greatness, why not find others who believe the same about us and themselves! 1. Do they live life with integrity? 2. Do they add value to your life? 3. Do they make you feel good about yourself after spending time with them? 4. Do you find yourself wanting to share good news with them, knowing they will clap for you? 5. Do they positively impact other people in your inner circle? 6. Do they offer advice when needed without judgement? 7. Do they themselves have goals and aspirations that they are running after? 8. Do they hold you accountable when you voice a goal? Now go out and create an “Inner Circle” that makes you smile, laugh, work hard, do more, be better and kick ass at life!
