Change your Circle of Influence change your Life

If you’re in a position of leadership, you obviously have proven talents and capabilities. You’ve gotten to where you are through a series of smart, successful decisions. But you can’t be all-seeing or all-knowing. There is no way to anticipate exactly what, when, and how forces will shake your company, nor to know which windows may crack or ceiling tiles fall when the tremors arrive.

Planning for adversity and future challenges is an essential duty of any leader. However, stuff happens. Economies crater. Competitors innovate. Technology advances. People leave. There is simply no way you can keep tabs on every piece of information, every shift in the playing field, every risk that could threaten your organization. But you can with the help of your circle of influence poll others advice and choose the ideas that best fit your scenerio.

Who is your “circle of influence”? Are you surrounded by positive people or negative people? This is a very important thing to know, positive people are like cheerleaders, always willing to help you in your time of need, negative people are always gloom and doom, never a good thing to say.

Make a list of people in your professional life, your personal life and your spiritual life. Three columns side by side. Now beside each one put a + or a – depending on whether they are a positive or a negative.

+ is for positive people in your life

– is for negative people in your life

Now look at the list and see which one you have the most of. If your list has more negatives then now is the time to find out why you continue to allow the negativity to control how you live your life and run your business.

If you have more positives in your life, feel blessed that your circle you’ve built has your back.

Take the time to start weeding out the negative people and replacing them with positive people, then step back and watch how you make decisions by being surrounded by a circle of influence that is positive. The differences will amaze you!

When I changed my circle of influence my business increased and my life had alot less stress in it. Try it and let me know how it works for you. Make 2012 a better year.
