Hey there friends,
This is a little bit of Telly today taking the wheel and chatting abut a few things close to my heart!
Back when 'Tap That' was first created, one of the most important things to me was the energy of the group and that every single Tap That member was not just crazy talented but also a great human with morals, respect, dignity and heart. I've really hit the jackpot here, I truly feel so humbled and happy by the squad we have. And that brings me to todays topic:
"You are who you surround yourself with."
Now think about that again, "You are who you surround yourself with"..... doesn't this make you want to make a conscious choice to surround yourself with stellar people. I mean, I'm not saying don't help your friends when they are down, or to go on an unfriending spree, or that you can't have a bad day. Let's be real... we ARE human. But what I am saying is you should surround yourself with people you look up too and immerse yourself in a community that encourages your growth.
If you are the most successful person in the room...it’s time to enter a new room!
Tap That Production is a space where everyone is unconditionally loved as they are. We call ourselves a "Dream Team" because it is our truth. We support our shared and individual passions, and constantly push each other to be our best—and also happen to have mad amounts of fun in the process! Our creations are a culmination of passion and hard work, combined with our crazy desire to push the boundaries and venture into the unknown. It took us a minute to get to this point, but we strongly believe that the wheels start turning faster when the time is right. You can’t build a strong foundation when you are harboring envy behind closed doors for whoever has the most likes. We know there’s power in having each others’ backs!
So what are the professionals saying?
The late entrepreneur and author Jim Rohn put it simply and powerfully when he said, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”
Studies confirm that who we spend time around can PROFOUNDLY impact us. These effects are due to what psychologists call emotional contagion. This embodies the idea that humans synchronize their own emotions with the emotions expressed by those around them, whether consciously or unconsciously.
And it’s not just the people we surround ourselves with that impact our mood, habits, and success. The environment you’re in also influences how you grow and develop. And a big piece of that environment is the media you indulge in.
I'm sure you have experienced it yourself, or know someone who has. Through social media platforms, we are conditioned to always perform, perform, perform. But there is amazing power in unplugging and taking time off social media to regroup, and find peace and sanity. I like to think of this as "self care", and hey, you are worth it. Find activities that make you feel great and surround yourself with stellar energy and remember people only post the pictures they want you to see! You got this... and we've got you!
So... lets make a deal with each other. Ok? Lets surround ourselves with uplifting people, and be a little bit of sunshine for someone else. It’s true that you get what you give and you attract what you exude, let’s make 2019 the best yet and support our sisterhoods and encourage our squads!
Imagine a world where we lift each other up and we grow together!
Much love and hugs
We are so excited to share these journeys with you
