A bit cliché, but you really are who you surround yourself with. If your environment is toxic, full of negative people who whine and complain all day – you increase your chances of taking on these bad habits and behaviours yourself.
Ultimately, finding friends and mentors who you trust, respect and admire when seeking insight into various issues – whether personal, career or business matters is important. When you’re seeking to progress further into your career or business, you will generally find fewer people: 1.) who you can relate to 2.) ask for valuable support and advice. Picture a hierarchical pyramid, as you climb higher and higher; it becomes less crowded at the top!
To help reach your peak, surround yourself with people who inspire and motivate you to achieve more.
