Stewart Emery: “Who’s in Your Room?” 02/14/13


In this video, I talk to bestselling author Stewart Emery about his concept “Who’s in Your Room?” which prompts people to practice discernment in regard to those they let into their life.

Just imagine you are going to have to live your entire life in one room with an entrance door but no exit door–who would you let in and who would you keep out?  Knowing the answer to this may be more valuable than you realize . . .

What do you think about this concept?  Does it encourage you to be more careful about the people you let into “your room”?  Please leave your thoughts in the comment forum below . . .

The question is – how do we know someone is quality and good for us? We can’t judge by book cover…

Hi Kent. Before you let people get close, find out about them. Particularly important are their ethics. You want to make sure they are in alignment with yours. Stewart will talk more about this in the book.

This has been a real eye opener for me. Its quite liberating to be free of those who drag out invoices for example. I look forward to the book!

This reminds me of a quote from President Eisenhower on this topic.

“but on the business of who know, a one-minute lecture to any young person who may read these words: Always try to associate yourself closely with and learn as much as you can from those who know more than you. Don’t be afraid to reach upward. Apart from the rewards of friendship, the association might pay off at some unforeseen time – that is only the by-product. The important thing is that the learning will make you a better person.”

From
At Ease
by Dwight D Eisenhower

I learned early in life from my parents “Garbage in equals Garbage out” So I have focused on quality people who are healthy in all areas of their life. And the “birds of a feather flock together” I always made sure my flock was of the highest quality. I always look for people with a high moral compass

I began practicing the concept “Who’s in your room” about 22 years ago. It has served me well. Great discussion topic.

Recently our chapter members discussed intensively about who we should or should not invite as visitors. Today,coincidentally, I found this article, and amazingly the concept of it just matches our needs. Thank you very much, Stewart for your great work, and thank you Ivan for your sharing.
