Do a People Audit

Updated: Dec 21, 2018

The people you habitually associate with determine as much as 95 percent of your success or failure in life, according to research by Harvard social psychologist, Dr. David McClelland. Take a minute to let that sink in.

This next part is going to sound harsh, but it's essential.

Step 1. List the top 10 to 20 people you spend the most time with. Step 2. Divide the list into three categories:

  • Uplifters, who inspire, challenge and support you

  • Downers who discourage or hold you back

  • Neutrals, who fall in the middle

Step 3: Make a list of five other potential uplifters that you want to spend more time with Step 4: Vote with your feet. Spend more time with the Uplifters, reach out to the potentials, and limit exposure to the Downers.

It is a slow process, but amping up your crew helps you be the best you. Don't let others drag you down. Your light deserves to shine brightly. #intentionality #selfawareness
