"Nothing gets you off course faster than staying with the wrong crowd. You can take control over the influence in your life if you choose your relationships. Small-minded people have a way of sucking ambition right out of you. Big minds have a way of elevating you to reach your highest potential". ~Terri Savelle Foy
"Don't share big dreams with small minds".
We talked about setting goals for this next week, being intentional, figuring out what you want for next week, and taking action.
I want to give you something else to think about, as we're going through "Dream It, Pin It, Live It" by Terri Savelle Foy.
"Don't share big dreams with small minds. Who should see your dreams?"...
Listen, learn, and take action on it. We're creating vision boards now and not waiting until next year.
"Your success can be determined in part by those with whom you surround yourself. But it can also be determined by those who you do not have around you. Small-minded people have a way of sucking ambition right out of you. Big minds have a way of elevating you to reach your highest potential".
Who are you hanging around with?
Who are you sharing your goals with?
Who are the people in your life that will elevate you, speak life over you, and encourage you?
Who are the negative people?
We're going to share these next goals with them. You don't have to go tell everybody what you're going to do in 2023. One of the most important decisions you will ever make in life is choosing your friendships and alignments, the people that you are hanging around with, and the people that you let into your life.
There are certain ways to say things in a nice way.
We homeschool our four daughters and we travel a lot. We are constantly around incredible people, and we are super blessed. So our daughters chose to play volleyball last year and the year before that. We're raising our girls to not be the average teenagers. You get to speak life into them, and you get to parent them.
So while my girls loved volleyball and the environment, there are still bad conversations, a lack of teamwork, and inward destructive words from team members to teammates that they get to experience. My daughter came home and said, "Mom, I hear you coaching people a lot. I hear you say that you become like the top five people you hang around with".
It's not that you need to unfriend people, but it's important to find alignments and people that will help you grow. So that team and environment were not serving our eldest daughter and our second daughter. They liked volleyball, but not enough to stay in that kind of environment, to hear the bad language only because they missed a set.
So she removed herself from that environment, and now, our four girls are in an incredible CrossFit gym family. There, they are built up, they are encouraged, they're not cussed at, and it's truly life-giving. It's challenging, and yet, people believe in them.
Who are you going to share your visions and your dreams for the next year with? Who are you going to surround yourself with?
If you need encouragement, you can tune in here, I would love to talk to you and encourage you until you can find the right alignments in your local area.
"You might need to keep your mouth closed around certain people. Perhaps even your closest family members, if you know they're not going to believe in the things you want to go after. Who you spend your time with has a huge impact on your dreams that you want to achieve".
So we're talking about creating vision boards, what do you want, and writing these things down. You don't have to tell everybody what you want to achieve next year, because you're just going to do it.
"Choose your associations wisely. I've heard it said that if you want to see where your life will be over the next five years, look at the list of names on your cell phone. You become like those who you spend time with".
There are things in you that only you can do. You have assignments in your life that you choose to step up and do it. It will inspire other people, there are things that you need to do, and there are gifts and talents inside of you that you are given.
You need to make sure that the right words and the right people are speaking over you and encouraging you. Even if it means finding a different group of people to hang out with. It could be online or in person. There are lots of places you can find people like that. You just have to know where to look, and you have to be open to it.
Listen, to people that speak positively. Find people who want better in their lives or people who are striving after better, and get around those people.
We all need to make assessments of the people that we are spending the most time with. They may be affecting our lives, you just cut off your friends or family. I'm suggesting that you find different peer groups to involve yourself in. It could be a moms group, go outside your actual job and you find some entrepreneurial business groups. Hopefully, the Keto Mom page can help you with that.
"Misery loves company".
When you start elevating yourself and you start going after better. It's not that people don't want you to achieve greatness. It's actually because they feel like they're being left behind, guilty, they're not enough, or like you're leaving them. It's not like they want to be mean to you, but they feel like you're leaving them.
So one of the best things you can do is ask them to join you. You can work on your mindset together. You can hold each other accountable. Your alignments are important.
"Nothing gets you off course faster than staying with the wrong crowd. You can take control over the influence in your life if you choose your relationships".
"Who does not need to see your vision board?"
All right! We're going to create vision boards and dreams. You're going to do things that you never thought you could do, or ever thought that you would accomplish. Because I'm going to believe that you're gonna do it.
Here's who you're not going to share your vision boards with right now...
Those who Lack Focus
Dream stealers and thieves
I'm around great people, I have goals, and I have accomplished my goals. There are things that I have said consistently over the years, and there are a couple of things that I'm not going to say anymore.
I've chosen my word for the year, I know what I need to do and I don't need to parade it around to everybody. What I need to do is show them. So, I'm creating a vision board. There are things I'm going to share with people, we talk about business, and about the goals that we have.
I'm actually going to do it, and I'm going to do it. I don't have all of the answers, but I have some answers. I've read a lot of books, I'm around a lot of great people. My husband and I have put ourselves in some incredible environments, with great people that want to grow, people to learn from, and people that are incredibly wise.
We take what we learn and put it into action. Whether it's about food, marriage, finances, or spiritual life. I want you to just have the awareness of learning something and putting it into action. I don't have to tell everybody, because everybody is not ready and everybody is not on board with what I'm doing.
I'm going to write it down.
I'm going to put it up.
I'm going to do the action steps, that I need to to create the life and accomplish the goals that I want to achieve next year.
I'm going to be wise with who I speak to.
I'm going to prove to people that I can do it.
I will help you, I have people that message me all the time. I give them insight and ideas, and support. So, don't wait till next year, and don't count yourself out. If you're not in the right group of people, find a new group of people.
I hope you have a great day! We will continue to go through this book, and we're going to wrap up the book. I'm going to give you the actual steps of what it means to create a vision board, brainstorm, and actually do the work. We're going to create the vision board, speak over your vision board, and talk about affirmations. Thanks for tuning in, and I hope you have a great day. We'll talk to you soon!
