Transcript – Sometimes You Outgrow People (Motivational Speech)
Sometimes you outgrow people. Sometimes you outgrow yourself. Sometimes you outgrow your environment.
Sometimes you outgrow who you wanted to be, and sometimes you outgrow who you became…
It might have all been positive. You may have come along way. But sometimes you have to move on.
That person may have had only good intentions for you. They might have given you everything they could… But sometimes you have to move on. Not in a negative way. In a positive way. For your growth, and for theirs.
You should surround yourself with people who are good for your mental health. People who give you energy, not drain it from you. People who light you up, not those who dim your light.
People who make you smile when you hear their name or see their call coming in. Those friends who you could go days, weeks, months without seeing, but when you do, the bond is still strong, because you care for each other.
Warren Buffett said:
“Surround yourself with people who push you to do better. No drama or negativity. Just higher goals and higher motivation. Good times and positive energy. No jealousy or hate. Simply bringing out the absolute best in each other.”
One of the greatest realizations any human can have is the effect people around you have on your life.
They say you’re the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with. That doesn’t just count in financial terms – it also means ENERGY. You’re the average of the POSITIVITY (or NEGATIVITY) of the 5 people you spend the most time with. You’re the average of the HAPPINESS (or lack of it) of the 5 people you spend the most time with.
You’re the average of the KINDNESS (or lack of it) of the 5 people you spend the most time with. People can really bless you or mess you up with their energy. You have to be so careful who you allow in your energy space on a consistent basis.
So many people think they don’t have a choice. YOU DO. Your energy is your choice. You decide WHO you let in to your space, and if you let negative people in, it’s also your choice if you’re going to let their negative energy in.
You have to remember to take care of YOURSELF. Sometimes we get so caught up in worrying about other people that we forget to look after ourselves first. You can not show up as the BEST VERSION of you if you are not taking care of YOU first. And the first step to taking care of you is giving yourself time BY YOURSELF. To WORK ON YOURSELF.
If you’re really going to take care of yourself, it’s also very important you evaluate your circle. Who are you spending the majority of your time with? Are they making you feel good about yourself or worse? Are they supporting you and the direction you want to go in life, or taking you down a path you don’t want to travel? Is their behaviour aligned with yours? Does it feel better WITH them or WITHOUT them in your life?
If you’ve outgrown these people maybe it’s time to limit your interaction with them, and explore what life might be like in a more positive space. Only you can decide that, and take those steps if you believe it is right for you.
But most people don’t take that step. The fear of the unknown keeps them locked in a prison of negativity. A gated community of misery and toxic energy. You have to find the courage to free yourself from this prison.
You deserve better, but you’ll only get better if you’re brave enough to explore life with people who are in alignment with your values.
Pay attention to the people who care. Those who are always there. Those who want BETTER for you. Those who share the same values. Those are your people.
Sometimes you just outgrow people. You don’t need to hate them. You don’t need to cut them off. But you do need to distance yourself from them, if you want to live your best life. Maybe, that is what is best for them too.
Choose people who choose you. Choose to be the one who LIFTS OTHERS UP as well. Choose to be the friend, the partner, the person you want most in your own life.
If someone is treating you bad, you have to remember there is something wrong with THEM, not you. They are the one who needs the work. Not you. Good people don’t go around putting others down. People who feel good about themselves don’t go around putting others down.
As the saying goes: “Life is so much simpler, when you stop explaining yourself to OTHERS and just do what is right for YOU.” Do what is right for you. Because that is what is right for everyone. Trust that.
When you get to that place, where you have no need to impress others or seek validation, and just be yourself – that is when your freedom will begin.
