Not Your Usual Suspects

I know you have all heard of the catchy slogan “Who’s in your Five?”  It’s the advertisement created by T-Mobile that offers its customers unlimited calls to their five favorite people.  Deciding who to let into your fave five is similar to choosing those you allow into your inner circle.  A covenant is an agreement between two or more people that is established to help each other fulfill their divine purpose and true calling in life. It is essential to form this type of covenant relationship with the people who play a vital role in our lives. What we fail to realize is that the fave five we most often select in our group of friends may be the very reason why we are not prospering in that business endeavor, excelling in school, or achieving a goal.  Once we recognize this and begin to surround ourselves with the extraordinary instead of the usual suspects, we will reach our fullest potential.

 Today’s Top Five Topic:  Ways to foster healthy relationships

.    Create an agreement or pledge between you and that other person

:    Establish reasonable terms or expectations of the relationship

:.   Honor the covenant and stay committed to what was promised

::   Enforce consequences of not upholding your end of the bargain

::.  Practice forgiveness and reconcilation

Have you encountered adverse situations in your immediate relationships that have made you re-evaluate those in your Fave Five?

  2. Can I just say the end of last year I had to cut not just people off my top 5 but also cut away some foolish issues of the heart that made its way to the top of my life! As always Lisa, I enjoyed the top 5!!
