Alliances. Collaborations. Partnerships. Friends. Family. I am a big fan of surrounding myself with people who are positive and fit nicely into various areas of my life. AND who I can be a positive influence and presence in their lives. It’s a two-way street.
I can’t do it alone! That is a good thing. We are in the world together. There are people who know things that I want to know. There are people out there who can learn from me. I enjoy working with like-minded individuals. I like being in a space where creativity is nurtured and appreciated. I try my best to protect the people I’m invested in and respect them. Loyalty is a great thing. Encouragement is an even greater thing. I try to encourage the people in my life (and ALL of you) to be the best you can be! And I like when im challenged in thought by someone who I KNOW has my best interest at heart.
Misplaced pride doesn’t work for me. It’s not a bad thing to ask for help. It makes you look smart. Recognizing that you need assistance is a great thing! I observe successful people all the time and for many of them, surrounding themselves with people who can be useful to them helps their success!
I invite you to take a look around in YOUR life and look at the company you keep.
