Walk Away Or Hold ‘Em?

Quickly think of the 10 people you spend most of your time with and jot them down in any order.

Pick a person on that list at random.

If I told you that in 12 months time you’d be exhibiting more of their personality traits, emulating their success level and experiencing the type of relationships they have – how would that make you feel?

If they’re people you would love to be becoming more like – great. If they’re not?

Well in the words of the immortal Kenny Rogers “the secret to survivin’, is knowing what to throw away and knowing what to keep”…. “you’ve got to know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em, know when to walk away and know when to run”.

Now – I’m not saying you have to “fold” on any family member, colleague or friend who isn’t living your dream life, but if there is someone in your close circle who gave you a sick feeling in the pit of your stomach when you envisaged becoming more like them. Perhaps it is time to walk away and spend more time with those people who inspire you?
