You’ve heard that saying, right? “Your network is your net-worth.”
We don’t want to get too hung up on the ‘net-worth’ side of things, but the general point is true.
Your circle defines who you are.
The people you move with, move you.
Seriously. Take a stock take of the 5 people you spend the most time with. It’s a huge insight in the values, the attitudes, the beliefs and the practices that define your life.
Now a lot of people are asking us what they should bring to The Alchemy of Achievement – our super-session with Allan, Alistair and John. (OMG Brisbane, it’s this weekend!!)
And you should totally bring pens and paper. We guarantee that you’ll leave there with a bunch of powerful tools to drive your life forward. Proven strategies for proven results.
But you should also come with an open circle.
This is a short-hand for a practice we’ve developed for opportunities like this. We let ourselves imagine what it would be like to have these guys in close, part of our immediate network – ministers in the day-to-day cabinet of our lives.
We open up and feel into what it would be like to be constantly nourished by that kind of optimism, commitment and compassion.
And then we feel into how we ourselves instinctively respond. We notice the postures of strength, focus and openness that their presence calls us into.
Something within us comes alive – the person we really long to be.
Having this insight into who you really are, if only for a moment, can change your entire life.
So come with an open circle.
Come with a willingness to hear a call to greatness, and a notebook full of practical productive strategies will be just be a bonus.
