Clap for the heavyweight champ

The people around you can make or break you. For whatever reason some people will believe that your success takes away from their success. Some people believe there’s not enough for all of us. Some people would rather hold you back than work on their own selves. Some people are motivated by all the wrong reasons. These are just a few reasons why it’s so important for you to surround yourself with the right people.

Not just the right mentors, but the right friends.  To become a better person and better at what you do, you need friends that are comfortable telling you when you are wrong. You need people who are willing to give you a nudge in the right direction when you need it. You need friends who you can call when you’re about to have a nervous breakdown right before you go on stage at a training event. You need people who believe in your abilities. You need people who will cheer you on. You need people who want to celebrate your victories.

If you keep people around you who don’t want to see you make it to the top (whatever you define as the top for yourself), you probably won’t make it. No need to make the climb harder for yourself by keeping frenemies around. In 2019, weed out those who are against you and tighten your bond with those who are with you.

My goal is to challenge the way we view, measure, and utilize HR and recruiting in a positive and encouraging way. I love working in HR and value the network of HR professionals that I also call friends. I'm always learning from my fellow HR pros and find comfort in their expertise. I'm an active member of my local SHRM chapter (NASHRM) and a total HR enthusiast! My HR related knowledge is a mix of recruiting, retaining, engaging and just plain helping people discover their passion. I'm a follower of Christ, Wife, Mom, Corporate Recruiter, Blogger, problem solver, runner, Sports FANATIC & Razorback surviving amongst the [crimson] tide! You can find me on twitter & Instagram: @HRecruit Snapchat: kminny32 Google+: https://plus.google.com/+KristinaMinyard LinkedIn: http://www.linkedin.com/in/kristinahutto/ Thoughts here (and on all my social media channels) are mine and do not represent the thoughts/beliefs of my employer. Why would I name my blog HR Pockets? Read about it in my first post years ago!!
