Want to FREE YOUR MIND this Friday?
Welcome to the 2nd installment of Free Your Mind Friday, where we focus cultivating a MAGIC mindset that is going to get us where we wanna be in life.
Last week's post was about how to think like a SuperStar and this week we are rolling with the SuperStar theme, exploring how important it is to surround ourselves with SuperStars if we want to culivate a Magic Mindset.
Are you surrounded by SuperStars?
Do you surround yourself with people who inspire you? People who have a postive worldview and who challenge and support you to be the best that you can be? Jo wrote a great post a few weeks back about the notion that you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with?'
Who do you spend most of your time with and how is this impacting on your mindset?
This is such an important question but we often overlook it. Women entreprenuers consistently idenitify lack of confidence and a lack of support as two of the biggest barriers to their success, yet so many seem to choose to struggle on alone without actively seeking out support.
If this sounds like you then it is time to get over it and start putting yourself first.
Surround yourself with people who motivate you and will encourage you to be the best that you can be. Yes, there will be naysayers. Yes, there will be people close to you who don't believe in what you are doing or tell you straight up that they think you are crazy. And yes, it is especially hard when it is the people that you love. But when it comes down to it, it's their problem not yours.
There's not much you can do about negative people or naysayers but you CAN influence your response to them. Don't even go there if you know all you are going to get is negativity and self-doubt. Keep your ideas and dreams to yourself around those people who can't give you the support you need.
Instead, start surrounding yourself with SuperStars. By SuperStars we mean the people that will keep you motivated and focussed on a mindset that is going to get you the results you want out of life.
Take 5 mins now to come up with 5 people you know who inspire or support you in a way that cultivates a MAGIC MINDSET . Then take steps to spend more time in their sphere of influence. Do it, do it, do it!
Remember, these can be people you know, people you follow on facebook, people you want to get to know, people who write mindset stuff, people you work with, people you live next-door to! SuperStars are everywhere, we just have to make a choice to become more conscious of them and the impact that they have on us.
My Current Top 5 Superstars!
I have met lots of SuperStars so far and I like to think I am getting better and better at attracting them into my 'sphere of influence!' These are the 5 wonderful people that are currently having a big impact on my mindset (in no particular order!).
- Suitcase Entrepreneur Natalie Sisson (fab Kiwi entreprenuer)
- Change Agent Maria Gamb (speaker at our recent telesummit who has become an unofficial mentor!)
- My biz partner Jo Foster (one of the most determined and positive people I have ever met!)
- My partner Sam (believes in me completely & never gives up on his own dreams as a potter & sculptor)
- My beautiful baby girl Isabella (who reminds me what its all about and makes me giggle)
All these people inspire me in a variety of ways and a couple of them specialise in giving me a good old kick up the bum when I need it as well!
We'd love to hear who your top 5 are. Please share them here or on our facebook page.
See you next Friday!
