Are you trying to accomplish something big, but aren’t getting anywhere?
Do you find yourself stuck in the same place and don’t know how to move forward?
Start by looking at the people you hang-out with.
- What are their ambitions?
- What are their goals and dreams?
- What are their standards?
Are they the same as yours, or do you avoid talking about your aspirations because they can’t relate?
Even worse, they think you’re crazy or a dreamer.
Avoid the Pessimists
You need to limit your time with naysayers. They will bring you down.
As Jim Rohn said: “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with”
Find the people who are doing what you want to do, and have the same goals you have. Immerse yourself in their company.
For instance, if you want to start a business and your family, friends and co-workers don’t understand what you’re trying to do, or why —you’re not going to be motivated, you won’t get encouragement. You’re going to stay at your current level.
Embrace the Ambitious
Instead seek out your peers, those who share your mindset, and want something better—to live their life at a higher level. Associating with them brings up your average. It will change you from mediocre to special.
Many times when I interview people for my Mastermind group, they tell me; ” my family and friends think starting a busines is a bad idea, they don’t think it’s worth my time and they don’t understand why I would want to leave my job.” They say “I have to get away from this negative thinking before I start listening to them and I give up.”
If this sounds like you, or you have no one who supports your ambitions, than change your environment. Seek out like-minded people.
The truth is that when you surround yourself with people who are like you, you transform faster, elevate your thinking, and expand the expectations you have for yourself. Their standards become your standards. It rasies your beliefs about what you can attain.
You’ll develop possibilities and a mindset you’ve never had before.
Find the Right Associates
If you want to associate with people who can raise your thinking, one way to do this is to join a mastermind group.
A mastermind group consists of like-minded people who help each other discuss, brainstorm and solve their business problems.
They support and encourage each other to help achieve their goals.
They understand each other, they speak the same language.
The right mastermind group provides the environment to build the life you want — beyond your expectations.
