You know that saying, you’re the sum of the five people you spend most time with? It’s totally true. So, who are you spending time with?
Do you ever get the feeling that your friends are bringing you down?
When you get together with friends do you feel like you can’t mention money because you think so differently to the people you’re hanging out with?
Don’t worry, we’re going to talk about what to do when you know you have to create or upgrade your friendships.
I’ve shared the seven success habits that took me to millionaire status here – check out number five – surrounding yourself with the right people!
You know that group of friends or mastermind buddies who you know will always have your back. These are your “ride or die” friends and mastermind buddies.
They’re the ones you call when everything’s gone wrong in your business or your life and who you KNOW will pick you up, tell you it’ll be OK and give you a kick in the butt if you need them to, as well.
They’re the friends you celebrate your successes, your ah-has and your screw-ups with.
It’s sad, but true: if you’re working on your money mindset, your business and your money blocks, and your fellow possé members aren’t, then chances are that you’ll outgrow them pretty soon, if you haven’t already.
So what happens then?
You need to upgrade
If you’re in my Money Bootcamp, then you’ll know that we talk about upgrades a lot.
Upgrades are one of the techniques you can use to get closer to living your First Class Life – the one that will make you feel abundant, and like a money magnet.
First of all, check who you’re hanging out with.
Are they friends who have all said that they want to start a business, but then just moan on about how they can’t quite decide what to do, or that it’s too hard?
Do they say they’ll do things, but then it takes them months to get around to it?
Maybe they’re big on ideas to improve their lives, but never actually do it and use every excuse under the sun to explain why.
If you’re on fire with ideas and enthusiasm, but your possé like to sit and whinge, then you’re not an energetic match… and I’m sorry sweetheart, but it’s really likely that they’ll bring you down.
When that happens, you pay with decreased business motivation that reflects in your bottom line.
And even if you’re not in business, that kind of energy can stop your manifestation mojo in its tracks.
So what can you do?
The first thing to do when you suspect that it might be time to upgrade your cheerleading squad is to check in with your own energy when you think about the group.
You don’t even have to meet up with the group in person to do this: just think about how you feel when you’re face to face with them.
If you feel any of the following, it might be time to upgrade your mastermind crew
These are all signs that it’s time to think about an upgrade.
You might say, “Denise! These are my friends, and I can’t just get rid of them!”
And that’s totally cool. I’ve felt that way before, too.
But your mindset is the most important thing to success in your manifestation. And sometimes we do outgrow friends on our way to living the life we’re consciously manifesting for ourselves.
When you’re in business, it’s no different. You will outgrow some of your mastermind buddies.
If you’re unsure of how to find another crew to mastermind with for your business, remember, it’s totally possible. You’ll definitely find another one once you open yourself up for it!
If you need to upgrade, here’s a few ideas of how you can:
If you don’t want to lose your current group, suggest that you all study a mindset or manifestation course together, or read a book on the subject, to lift you all up. (You could try Lucky B*, or Get Rich, Lucky B* .links)
Just remember that you can’t make everyone take the journey with you.
Give them a chance to get on the train with you, but if it takes a lot of your energy to keep everyone motivated and enthused, it’s not worth it. You might have to face the fact that it’s time to cut your ties to that group.
Good luck, gorgeous!
It’s your time, and you’re ready for the next step.
