You are the five people you spend the most time with.
You are the books you read and the movies you watch.
You are what you eat and how often you move your body.
You are your thoughts and your emotions.
All of these things shape who you are, how you show up in the world, and what kind of an impact you have on those around you.
Your inner circle is important because it shapes everything about you. The people you spend your time with, the things you consume, and your thought patterns all influence the person that you become.
It's important to be intentional about who and what you allow into your inner circle because those things will have a direct impact on your life.
If you want to live a positive, happy, and fulfilling life, it's important to keep your inner circle positive, too. Here's how:
Surround Yourself With People Who Believe In You
It's so important to surround yourself with people who believe in you, even when (and especially when) you don't believe in yourself. When you're doubting yourself, your friends and family should be there to pick you up and remind you of how great you are—because they see greatness in you even when you don't see it in yourself. Seek out relationships with people who make you feel good about yourself, and who build you up instead of tearing you down.
Spend Time With People Who Make You Laugh & Who Bring Joy Into Your Life
Life is too short to spend time with people who don't make us happy. Spending time with family and friends should be a joyous occasion—something we look forward to instead of something that feels like a chore. If someone consistently brings negative energy into your life or doesn't make an effort to make spending time together enjoyable, they might not be worth keeping around. Instead, focus on filling your life with people who make spending time together fun and easy—people who make you laugh until your stomach hurts and bring joy into every interaction.
Choose Quality Over Quantity
It's not about having a lot of friends—it's about having a few really great ones. Just like anything else in life, we should aim for quality over quantity when it comes to our inner circle. Having fewer close friends allows us to have deeper relationships and encourages us to invest more time into those relationships. Those quality friendships are the ones that will last a lifetime because they're built on a foundation of trust, love, and respect.
Remember That Your Inner Circle Is A Choice—Choose Wisely!
You get to choose who is in your inner circle—so choose wisely! Fill your life with people who make you feel good about yourself, who bring joy into every interaction, and whom you can count on no matter what life throws your way. When we're intentional about the company we keep, we can create an inner circle that supports us, loves us unconditionally, and helps us reach our fullest potential!
