Your inner circle has a tangible effect on you
We’re all humans. We all have good days and bad days.
There are days we feel incredibly confident and fulfilled, and then there are days we’ll question everything we’re doing.
Having to deal with negative, judgmental energy in your inner circle can put a toll on you.
As much as possible, surround yourself with people who inspire you to be a better version of yourself, who are not judgmental, who don’t cause drama, and who support you going after your dreams.
The influence of your associations on you is really tangible.
A nice metaphor I’ve heard is how well a flower blooms often has to do with the soil surrounding it and not with the flower itself.
