Building your social capital

It’s investment Thursday, today we talk about social investments.

I want to know how deeply you have invested in your social capital. Do you have a financial tribe you can depend on? A people who conditionally motivate you into becoming the best version of yourself? A people who mention your name in rooms full of opportunity? A people who call out your bad habits, and hold you accountable?

If you do not have these, then you can start by being the person you want in other people. When you make yourself dependable, your energy is reciprocated.

Your total input into relationship building determines the total output you’ll get from your social capital.

Wealth by Association

Is it true you can get extremely wealthy by the mere fact of associating with the right people?

Or better yet you can be the right association for your circle of friends to build wealth?

A problem these days is we see fault in other people but hardly hold ourselves accountable. If you are the right association the universe reverberates that by bringing more people who add value into your life.

Today I challenge you to be the best version of yourself, to be the cup that pours into people, to be the light amidst the darkness, to be the hope in dissolution, and to be as impactful as possible.
