We all have people in our lives, some that move us towards our dreams and goals and some that hold us back from them. She gave the students (and I asked for one as well) a handout called Dream Team. The directions read: "List ten people with whom you spend the most time. On a scale from 1 to 10, rate each relationship. A score of "1" indicates that the relationship completely pulls you away from your goals and dreams. A score of "10" means the relationship completely propels you towards your goals and dreams."
Once every one in the room had filled out the paper, she asked them a few questions to think about. Here they are:
- Why do I spend so much time with someone who doesn't help me towards my dreams and goals?
- How does it feel when I hang out with the people who don't help me towards my dreams and goals?
- Why haven't I tried to find a new relationship with someone else who will help me towards my goals?
