“You are the average of the five people you spend most of your time with!”

Do you agree with this statement?

The first time I heard this, I was shocked.

‘What?’ I heard myself shouting in my head.

At the time, I spent a lot of my days with certain people that, although I enjoyed spending time with, weren’t exactly the type of people I aspired to be.

Like a knee-jerk reaction, I instantly ran through all the people in my head.

I mentally summarised their positive and negative influences on me. And whether, indeed, I was the average of their traits and qualities.

And the result?

It was not good!

Because, as painful as it was to admit to myself, there were many common traits in them that I saw in myself.

They weren’t harmful traits, but they weren’t the traits that propelled me to be a better version of myself.

And they weren’t qualities that helped me raise my vibration so that the Universe couldn’t wait to shower me with positivity and beauty.

That is when my plan to recognise, ameliorate, and eliminate started.

It is easy to start the plan, but the difficulty lies in recognising the unhelpful traits and qualities in the first place.

So, if you feel like you are doing all the right things, but there’s still a block in your abundance, try The People Tree exercise.

This exercise is adapted from the book The Source by the thought-provoking Dr. Tara Swart.

Here is a warning, though. The People Tree exercise is confronting, eye-opening, and perhaps even shocking!

But I guarantee you will gain clarity and, indeed, the motivation to take action!
