What kind of people do you surround yourself with?
What happens when you hang out with the wrong crowd?
You may have heard me say “you are the sum of your past and your influencers.”
The real question is: Why are you in a place where you surround yourself with the wrong people?
The importance of “your why”
To figure this out you have to understand your Root System. Understand “your why”.
If you don’t understand why you’re hanging out with toxic people that may be your bigger issue.
You need people in your life that you can trust.
For most of us we need to understand our trained decision-making.
If you’ve been controlled all your life, your default will be to hang out with people who control you.
They make you feel like you’re not good enough, and you need people to tell you what to do.
If you are the controlling person, you will surround yourself with other controlling people, but you will never have them in your life very long.
You can’t control them so you don’t stay friends long.
You try to control through anger and that won’t last.
Instead of people who will push you to be great…you stay in your default, your comfort zone.
If the 5 closest people in your life are not healthy for you – you need to find new friends.
But, ultimately you have to find your self worth from God.
Only one place can give you consistent self worth – it’s GOD!
If you are looking for the approval of anyone other than God you will end up in trouble.
Listen to this episode and let me know in the comments how you surround yourself with healthy people.
