The company you keep is important….
…especially if you want to be successful.
So what do you do?
Surround yourself with positive people.
It’s the one habit highly successful people do (and have in common) when the people in their life aren’t supporting their goals.
And Forbes agrees:
“One of the most important decisions we make in life is who we choose to be around. In fact, there is an old proverb that reads, “Show me your friends and I’ll tell you who you are.” Quite often we become like the people we’re around. Based on that, we must be cautious about whom we surround ourselves with because of the short- and long-term implications.”
As the saying goes you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.
Whether you’re just starting out or you already have an established business, the importance of surrounding yourself with the right people really can’t be underestimated.
Since starting my business I’ve been connecting with lots of other business women. Their support and guidance has been invaluable.
They understand my highs and lows because often they’ve been there too.
They know exactly how to get me back on track when I need it.
I really couldn’t have done it without them.
Today I’m going to show you how you can surround yourself with success and positive people.
Let’s get to it:
Choose Your Friends Wisely With Those That Build You Up And Believe In You
Sometimes we form friendships with people by default.
Perhaps you stay friends with people from school or you’re just used to hanging around the same crowd.
But as we evolve and grow, especially when our goals change, it can often be a stark realisation that our friends we grew to know and trust may see your success or growth as a threat.
It’s not uncommon for friendships to drift apart.
Just realise that if this does happen it’s not a reflection of you, but of them.
You don’t need to spend time with people who bring you down and aren’t excited about your success.
Attract The Right People So You Get The Right Support
To do great work you will have to get out of your comfort zone and take some risks that may be unsettling.
This is best tackled with the right support around you.
So become the best version of you.
Steve Jobs sums this up best:
“Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.
You have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something–your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.
The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.”
You Are Who You Surround Yourself With
