We spend a significant portion of our adult life surrounded by the people we work with and those we associate with through our professional pursuits.
You most likely spend a lot of time with your coworkers, maybe even more time than with your own family and friends. These connections and the environment within which you work will directly impact the way you feel about yourself.
From Proverbs we learn, “He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.”
Who you surround yourselves with MATTERS.
This is a truth I have discovered over the last few years as I have built my professional career as a speaker and leadership mentor. As I write this I am sitting in a Las Vegas conference center where I am spending 5 days surrounded by new and old friends of the National Speaking Association.
On this Sunday morning, many of us who share a common faith gathered for an early morning service to bolster and strengthen our faith. While not a traditional sunrise service, we were blessed to feel the radiating light of our Savior Jesus Christ.
In turn, I have felt the radiating light of the faith and love from those I am surrounded by.
To my friends of the Mountain West Chapter of the National Speaker Association…
I Love You!
