If you have ever heard me speak or hang around me for any amount of time, you have heard me say that you are the sum total of the five people you interact with the most. Not only is it important to interact with the right people, but what they do for you is just as important.
There are four key things you want your inner circle to do for you. And make sure you are doing it for them as well.
The first thing you want to ensure that they are doing for you is PRAYING for you. Prayer is a powerful force that they can release in your life. Ask them to pray for your health, family, projects and overall well being.
Secondly, you want your inner circle to PUSH you. Sometimes we can find our selves dragging and need a little push. This also works when you are ready to give up as well, that little push will give you the motivation to keep on going.
Thirdly, you want your inner circle to PROMOTE you. You shouldn't be in competition with those in your circle, so they should have no problem promoting you and your projects.
Lastly, count on your circle to PROTECT you. Many times we are so in the fight, that we cannot see all the danger around us. Trust your circle to protect your blind side. We all need a good corner team.
Look for your inner circle to provide these vital measures, and ensure you return the kindness.
Can you think of some helpful things that your inner circle can provide, share them with us?
