The Company You Keep…

A person’s environment and relationships are just as, if not more, important than that person.  Each entity influences the other and in ALL CASES produces change.  When preparing to take on new challenges it is essential to become aware of the environment that you will be going into.  You need to have some idea of whom and what you will be exposed to and how they can affect your choices.  Yes, I am aware that you cannot prepare for everything, but using common sense and doing a little research can help in avoiding some unnecessary stress.
While “preparing” for new environments and contacts, you also may want to keep in mind your current ones.  Who do you invest your time and energy in?  Who is investing their time and energy into you?  Are people just around or “supportive” because you are successful, popular, trendy, or “on your way?”  Keep those things in mind.  It all plays a part in how you respond to new things.  The connections you have to friends, acquaintances, and business associates NEED to be productive.  Having people close to you personally, financially, professionally, spiritually, and physically leaves you in a vulnerable position.  Productivity not only helps sustain your connection to that person but should also be fuel to keep both of you moving forward in your endeavors.  To some this may not be relevant or important.  For those of you who need to reevaluate, please do…YOU ARE WORTH IT!
Until next time…Andrea

    So true! As the old saying goes, birds of a feather flock together. If your circle is full of negative people who are never happy or never getting anything accomplished and you wonder why you can't seem to move forward in your life, you need to change your circle. Believe it or not, your surroundings do effect you significantly.

    It is true for me. Others may not feel vulnerable. A person having access to my home, life, $$, career, spirituality, and body requires a higher level of trust. But if that person changes their mind or makes a negative choice for whatever reason, I am directly affected.
