I’ve learnt this lesson the hard way, it’s took me years! It’s always about your inner circle! Those friends / colleges that help push you to the next level or stage of your life. The ones that when you pitch your ideas and goals they actually try and give ways how to enhance!!- Or you’ll surround yourself with the people that be like “that’s nice” & that you know aren’t clapping loud for you.
It’s good to have a mix of friends, as they have experienced different life stages with you. However you must remember not to try and include them in everything you have going on, it’s not always for them. I’ve tired millions of times to try and motivate the unmotivated or bless people the way life has blessed me so far. Sadly it doesn’t work like that, and you will find more distance from them. You will find conversations go more silent and energy shifts.
Life sometimes comes down to the sacrifices that you are willing to make in order for you to get to the top.
