Access to friendship, or your inner circle, should be gained through trust and commitment. The people around you can affect you and determine if you have a negative or positive outlook on life or goals. Close friendship doesn’t happen by chance; it requires a high commitment and intentionality to make it work.
The selection of your environment, friends, and mentors is instrumental to how far you will go. We are only as good as the people committed to being in our life. If you are who you surround yourself with, what kind of people are around you?
Life is precious, so surround yourself with good people. Everyone deserves the best version of you. Let go of the need to be anxious, resentful, inferior, superior, or offended. Try to align yourself with people who will tell you the truth and be willing to hear it.
Be prepared to battle the storms of life. Bad things often happen unannounced. You don’t get to choose which storms you will face in life.
Have the discipline and courage to face the storm. Lean on your friendships and trust the process. Know that the greater the storm, the greater the reward you will receive.
