Who are your five best friends that you spend the most time with? Take a good look at them. Are they where you want to be, or striving to achieve goals that are similar to yours?
It doesn’t matter how smart you are. It doesn’t matter how talented you are, which skills you have, where you are born, or which family you came from. All that counts if you want to be successful in life is the people you surround yourself with.
Your friends, or the people you hang out with, are a pretty good indication of where you are in your life.
It’s been proven many times that your income (and your weight and your outlook on life…) will be very close to the average of the people you spend the most time with.
Make it a point to associate with Winners. Get out there and meet lots of people. Find people who are going the same direction as you. These people will help you to grow as you also help them grow. That is the most healthy relationship – where you both have something to offer.
By hanging around with successful people, you will get a team feeling and a sense of belonging to a vibrant group of people who are aiming for a common goal. You can encourage them and they can encourage you, and together you will all move up the ladder of success.
I’m not saying to get rid of your friends if they’re not the image of where you want to be.
Of course everyone has qualities in one form or another and they can still be your friend. But aim to spend the bulk of your time building quality relationships, where it’s truly a win-win for both of you.
