Can Your Relationships Affect Your Energy

27 Jan 2017

In order to move forward you need to review your past, just don’t drop an anchor, it’s just a visit. The past leaves hints and has something to give.

As I thought about 2015, the year when I felt my progress was best with the best energy, the best results, the most progress. I produced more content, published more books and tapped more videos than I thought was possible.  I also held more training sessions, worked out and was more fit than most years. I had great energy and never felt tired.

I looked for a year in my past when I felt the struggles were the greatest. I know nothing is good or bad until you compare to something else.

Here is what I found to be most amazing, the very best year was when my relationships were the strongest. I was around active, positive people. The year I found to be a struggle is when I was surrounded by people with a different outlook than mine. I felt tired and worn out to the point where I did not work out and so my weight and fitness began to slip.

Look at your relationships are they moving you forward or are they holding you back? If you want to move forward chose your friends wisely.

I believe the statement is true, “you are the sum of the 5 people you spend the most time with”.

The only question is are you spending time with the right people?

Thanks for spending a few minutes with me today.
