Wolves: Consciously Create Your Own Wolfpack

As we all know, wolves travel in packs. They dedicate their lives to their journey and because of that, they never separate. Sharing the same mission, they succeed in surviving the wilderness and remain at the top of the food chain.

Surrounding yourself with people who think the same way you do directly impacts your success. There are two types of people who roam your social circles: good people and parasites.

Over the years, I’ve entrusted too many parasites. As a person, I genuinely want everyone to succeed. I believe that anyone with a dream should have the opportunity to achieve it. I become so engrossed in their life, I start to want it for them more than they want it for themselves. I become obsessed with them achieving their goals that I totally forget about mine. The energy I should be putting towards my dreams, I put towards someone else’s. Of course, these parasites take full advantage of the situation because they literally get to sit back, kick their feet up and relax while my dreams fall by the wayside.

Once you muster up the courage to rid your life of these energy sucking parasites, you must have the courage to create your very own wolf pack. Find people who share your mindset. Create a support system of people who thrive on success and never even think about settling.

Good people inspire you to be a better person. They provide you with motivation to achieve your goals and empower you to make the changes you need to succeed.

Good people hold you accountable.

Recently, I got rid of a few parasites in my life. I feel like a boulder was lifted from my shoulders but I still mourned the loss of that relationship. I didn’t leave my room except to go to work each day. My roommate, a member of my wolf pack, forced me out of bed to go to a Soul Cycle class, and I couldn’t be more thankful. She knew exactly what I needed to get me out of my rut and back on track. She knew I was slacking on my goals and made me deal with it.
