Have you ever wondered why a certain group of people always stick together?
If you think back to high school, everyone seemed to have their own clique, the popular ones always stuck together, the unpopular ones stuck together and of course the smart ones stuck together !
Well if you never thought about it, I certainly wondered why, it took me a while to figure out why, but when I did the results certainly changed my life.
It is because you become what you attract into your life. Knowing what you know now, here are the 3 people that you need to start spending time with.
Surround yourself with successful people. Did you know you become the top 5 people you surround yourself with? There is a popular saying that goes “your network is your net worth” and that is so true. Someone once said “If you hang out with 5 millionaires and you will become the sixth.” Well, surround yourself with poor people and fill in the blank
The good news is that you can change your network. Yes, just because someone has been your friend for 20 years and he/she is not leading you anywhere does not mean that you should stick with them.
Apart from letting go, sometimes you might have to invest in yourself to change your network, sometimes you may have to read books written by successful people, sometimes you can watch their speeches online, whichever way you can, make a conscious effort to surround yourself with people who are already successful. You can learn from their robust experiences.
Surround yourself with mentors. Mentors are usually people who already have what we would like to have or have been where we want to be financially, personally or career-wise. Think about those people that you look up to and write down why.
Also make a list of what you really love about them or something that makes you attracted to them. For example, one of my virtual mentor is Oprah and I like the fact that she is unapologetically confident about who she is.
You should get yourself a mentor because your mentor can challenge you to become better and achieve the great things you wish to achieve in your life. A mentor can also help you with a sense of where you want to go and more importantly how you want to achieve And please I know we have friends and family members who support us but the benefits of having a mentor who has actually been there and done it are incomparable. Trust me if you want to learn and grow faster you will definitely learn from their experience.
Surround yourself with positive people. Do you know at least one person that is always positive? It just feels like no matter what happens around a positive person, they ALWAYS have a positive and optimistic towards everything life. I credit myself with being positive but I must confess I still struggle a bit to always be positive. During my “down time” I call up a positive friend and allow them to bless my heart with positivity.
Positivity has a strong force so does negativity. While negativity drains your energy, positivity expands your energy and helps you feel alive. Being around positive people definitely has its own perks so be sure go be around at least one person has a positive outlook about life.

Have you ever been through tough times and you think the devil and his cohorts are LITERALLY out to get you?
Like you just want to throw in the towel and forget about life? Have you ever felt liked you have worked so hard for something and it just wasn’t working out the way you planned?
Well that was me last weekend and I was beginning to think negative thoughts like “well maybe this isn’t for me” maybe I am not good enough to get it blah blah you know how it goes downhill from there.
I completely shut down, fast forward 3 days later, to avoid going insane I picked up my phone and called one of the few people in this world that I can trust with my life. Speaking of support system, if by now you don’t have a proper support system then you should, there is nothing better than having people who encourage you in your down times, it helps.
She cheered me up but I still felt a little upset, I still did not feel 100% right
I tried to put on my big girl pants and act tough but I noticed one thing…
I still did not feel better.
And then I had an aha moment like Oprah would say, and immediately I dropped the act and decided to be. Just be in the moment. To take it all in , even though bad but just take it in and trust that this too shall pass and guess what? It did.
So here is my question for you: Are you hiding your true feelings (even though admitting it might hurt you)? Are you masking your feelings behind a smile, you smile around with everyone but within you are choking with hurt, pain, or disappointment?
I urge you to take a moment right now. Yeah now, and receive it, I am not saying you should allow it dwell in you and remain there forever, “receiving it” means that you acknowledge that it is there and you are ready to heal, hiding or pretending or ignoring might help you temporarily but the real problem will persist until you face it head strong and deal with it.
Acknowledge, receive and remember this too shall pass. By now you know the drill, please leave your comments below, I love to read them and also remember to tag and share with your friends who might be going through some tough times, you never know this post can help them too.
I would leave you with this “When life gives you lemons make some lemonade+add sugar and be damn sure to invite your friends over for a lemonade party. Happiness is a choice and I choose to be happy. Will ya?”
We can agree on one thing; beauty is difficult. Trying to maintain your look without spending your bank account is a way out. There are millions of hacks you can use to keep up with your amazing look, but here are five I’ve gathered for you guys!
1. 🍋Lemon Juice. 🍋 Apply lemon juice to your face to shrink pimples, and get rid of blemishes/scars. Not only is lemon juice used for cooking, but it can help your skin!
Lemon juice has natural antibacterial properties that makes it a good alternative to help cure acne and prevent further breakouts.
Age spots can be diminished by applying lemon juice to the discolored area. This works best if you apply the lemon juice and leave over night.
2. 👶Baby Powder.👶 if you’re running late for a day with the girls, baby powder is coming to your rescue. Applying a bit under your arms will make you sweat and stink-free. You’ll be safe for a couple hours, at least.
3. Vaseline. It gives protection for minor cuts and burns. You can find it in drugstores or pharmacies, places like Walmart, Walgreens, for at least two dollars.
You usually use it for dry skin or small cuts But it can be used more then that! Dab a tiny amount of petroleum jelly on your cheeks for an amazing gorgeous glow-y touch to your cheeks. It’s a money-saver, and it illuminates your cheekbones.
Bye bye, blush! 💁
4. Coconut Oil. Keep your money in your wallet, people. Instead of rushing to Walgreens for some EOS, just go through you kitchen cabinet, and get some coconut oil!
It’s a natural lip balm! Just dab a bit on those dry, chapped lips, and it will reward you with soft, soothing lips!
5. Cinnamon. A lot of face powders have chemicals and other things that can cause break outs and acne, things just for your skin. Use cinnamon as an amazing face bronzer.
Mix up 2 tablespoons of cinnamon with 3 teaspoons of cornstarch, and done! Lightly apply this mixture with a bronzer brush for a natural glow.
If it is too light with your skin tone, use more cinnamon. If it’s too dark, use less.
That’s all I have for today, thanks for reading. If you have a beauty hack of your own, share it in the comments, I’d love to read them. Tell me if any of these hacks worked for you, and stay amazing.
