Surround yourself with people who are kind, empathetic, compassionate, loving, interesting and who laugh a lot.

Most importantly, surround yourself with people who want to improve themselves.

You will be amazed what an impact that has on your life. You’ll be amazed too at how few you need of them. We don’t need 500 friends or 1,200 connections or 5,000 followers.

Steer clear of the energy vampires, who suck and drain your energy and time often with negativity, fear, hate, and anger. There are many of them ready to suck you dry.
