Want to know how to simplify life? This is how simple that life needs to be.
Hey good morning folks. Grant here. for those of you that don’t know me, well then you don’t hang around my Facebook enough. So, my name’s Grant. Primarily what I do, is I help small business owners in their life to get ahead and to make more money and to have more influence. And basically to improve their businesses. And primarily what I do, is I focus on sales as well.
So, I’m going to simplify a whole bunch of stuff today, simplify life. I have been away from Facebook Live now for a couple of weeks. And there’s a big reason for it. I have been really tired of seeing people go on Facebook Live just for the opportunity to be seen, or for the opportunity to say something and there isn’t a lot of weight in what they’re saying. I think people are primarily using this sort of platform, just to get likes or love or whatever they’re getting. So I disappeared for a couple of weeks. But I’ve been thinking about something very important to come back and talk to you about. And I want to simplify everything for you today. And really what it is, is I just want to talk to you about this. In fact, I’ve drawn it in a diagram. This is how simple that life needs to be. So this is what I want to talk to you about today. I want to talk to you about your circle. And how you need to guard, in fact not you need, in fact right now you have to guard your circle.
What does this mean? Here’s you. And there’s a circle. And everything that happens inside of that circle is your thoughts, your beliefs, your values, your family, the people you love, and the people that matter. Inside that circle. Outside that circle is everything else. Now let me tell you this clearly, everything outside of that circle is none of your business. What happens inside of this circle is all of your business. You have to guard your circle.
You have to be able to guard your circle. What does this mean? If you have a gap in that circle, you will let in – listen to me – you will let in crap. If what is inside the circle, is not as strong as what is outside of the circle, all of the stuff outside of the circle, you will allow to influence you. Things like: getting your news from social media, listening to uneducated morons about opinions that they came up with on the toilet, that have no foundation and no basis in anything other than their opinion. If your thoughts, your values, your beliefs, your way of life isn’t strong enough, you will be influenced by outside things, people, stuff… in such a way that you will never get to where you were supposed to go. You’ve got to guard your circle.
You’ve got to be careful who you let in. You’ve got to be careful what you watch. You’ve got to be careful what you see. You’ve got to be careful what you listen to. You’ve got to be careful what you read. The quality of your life is determined on the size of your circle. The quality of your life is determined on the quality of the thoughts you have, the quality of the books you read, or the information you take in, and the quality of the people that you surround yourself with. And right now, I’m saying to you, you’ve got to guard your circle.
If your circle is too big, you’ve got to make it smaller. You’ve got to start kicking some people out of your life: People that cause you stress, people that change your way of thinking in a way that you don’t want, people that influence you towards fear, people that influence you towards a way of poverty that you’re not happy with. You’ve got to cut them out of your life. And if your circle by the way, is too small, where you can’t let anyone in – where people like me perhaps challenge you a little bit too much, then maybe you need to enlarge your circle just a little bit. Because if this bubble is too tight around you, and you just cannot let anything in, maybe enlarge it a little bit. But be careful what you let in. Be careful, be savvy, be intelligent about what you let in. Because if you let anything, any old thing in, you’re just going to end up – you’ve heard the saying mud sticks right? – so other people’s dirt is going to come slinging towards you.
Surround yourself with clean thinking. Surround yourself with clean people. Who you surround yourself with is who you end up with. The top 5 people in your life right now are a representation of who you are. Guard your circle. And that’s what I wanted to let you know today. This will determine who you are.
