--- The perfect combination of people in your life that help to drive you forward---
There's a few key elements you should look for when connecting with and inviting folks in your circle. When I say circle, I don't mean clique for exclusion purposes or looking down on others-- but these people make up your support system and add to your success. It isn't often that you find genuine people who simply want to see you win, but when you do, be sure to celebrate them and appreciate their presence in your life. Let's talk about the 3 most important ways to know when you have found your dream team!
When you meet....
Someone that offers wise counsel: "Listen to advice and accept discipline, and at the end you will be counted among the wise." (Proverbs 19:20) It is foolish to think we know everything and have all the answers! This person will offer words of wisdom and advice without judgement, and help to keep you level-headed & on the right track.
Someone that pushes you to achieve your maximum potential and supports your dreams: This is the person that knows you are gifted and full of potential and sees to it that you fulfill every one of your life goals! They may serve as a teacher, mentor, or coach-- or simply be your biggest cheerleader 👐🏽🙆🏽♀️. Sort of like a guardian angel, this person is designated to guide you through the trenches when the going gets tough!
Someone that loves you unconditionally: This one is a special gift from God because they have your back in good times and bad, gives you the truth even if it hurts, and is there to wipe the tears away when it is all said & done.
These people are treasures that are one in a million, and God will send them into your life just when you need them most. Sometimes you have to pray for discernment so God can make it clear to you the people you need to keep close, and the ones who were just meant to watch you eat (He prepares a table before you in the presence of your enemies!).
