How many times have you heard the saying? “show me your friends and I’ll tell you who you are. ” That’s a saying I used to always hear from my grandfather.( he was a very wise man) if you are like me, or most people, then you are always striving to be successful.The road to success can be long and hard. It may be that you just want to be a better person or that you want to accomplish something great, either way, the fact is, it’s going to be tough. Therefore, you are going to need support.
There is one thing that I really believe in and it’s that we are products of our environments. How many times have you found yourself using a saying your mother always used? Or doing something the way your dad always does it? That is you being a product of your surroundings.
Yes, you have to surround yourself with people that can directly and indirectly influence your journey in a positive way. However, you have to be the kind of person that you would truly want to be around. Let me explain; You have to know who you are, what you want and really figure out, what is important to you. Being fully aware of yourself and what you believe in, will help you to categorize the people that you will come across. Some of the characters in your life will fall under the propelling category and of coarse there is going to be a category for the ones holding you back ( be very careful of those.)
Now the winners I speak of, doesn’t necessarily have to be those you are used to, or the ones with obvious connectors. Your winners can be anyone, from anywhere. They just need to be people that feed your energy in a positive way. It could be that they are hard at work trying to achieve the same goal you are trying to achieve. It could be that they share the same morals, or it could very well be that they have accomplished what you are trying to do. Winners are the ones that are there to cheer you on, no matter where they are in their own journey. They are the ones that will be there to tell you that you have to continue when you feel like giving up and they are the ones that will be there when you have finally won.
