Surround Yourself With The Right People (avoid naysayers)
IMPORTANT NEWS: Surround Yourself with People You Can Model. Surround Yourself with the Right People.
It is very common that someone wants to advance in his career but fail to do so for many reasons that they don’t understand, but most of the time they have the answer just in front of them… The people they hand with. I’ve heard the fiction story about a 40-45 years old guy who just found out that he doesn’t like his life and want to make a change; he really wants to do something about his situation and improve his life because he is not well financially, with his family and so on…
So he starts to study the steps that need to be done to achieve more success in his life but he keeps failing and failing and don’t know why, what happens is that he hangs out with the incorrect people, people that bring you down, people that does not care about their success and are jealous of you even trying to achieve more, so they’ll constantly tell you negative stuff about your goals, objectives and plans to do better, stuff like: “no, don’t even try it, it won’t work” or “you are just not capable of doing this or that” and the list goes on and on. (and this story happen to be the truth for almost 95% of the active population)
If you’re really serious about doing better with your relationships, financially and with your time, you need to start thinking about surrounding yourself with people that is doing better than you (but you should not fill them with negative or sorry stuff about your life, otherwise they will break the relationship before it even starts), people you can model to success, if you keep hanging with people that is constantly complaining about things, then it is going to be very difficult to be able to make a change because they’ll keep giving you wrong advise, advise for which they don’t have any experience.
