Everyone needs a cheerleader in their life. A champion for you and the dreams you have. There is something quite remarkable about people that see greatness in you even when it is lying dormant. It is absolutely vital to surround yourself with people that bring out the best in you. There are those special people that speak light and life into dark situations, cry with you when things are dark and rejoice with you when the sun shines upon you. Those are the kinds of people you need in your life.
What a lot of us don't realize is that you become like the people you spend the most time with, so spend time around those that lift you up, encourage you to pursue your dreams, those that believe in you even when you don't believe in yourself and those who inspire you to be all the things you dream about. Four wonderful traits to look for are those that are inspiring, compassionate, authentic and genuine. Those traits are the tent poles of amazing people. Someone that can inspire you, is compassionate about the plights of others, authentic in who they are and genuine is a great recipe for friendship.
