4 – Surround Yourself With The Right People
The Right People Can Make Your Business
The wrong people can break it. So do yourself a massive favour and surround yourself with the right people.
Now this is probably something you’ve heard many times before.
Don’t hang around with the wrong crowd, this could even mean rethinking your friends. I’m not saying you need to suddenly ditch your best friends but maybe re-evaluate how often you see them and what you do with them. If they’re the type of friends you only go out drinking with, or laze around with on weekends, or you can’t have any stimulating conversations with, then they could be part of the reason you’re not moving forward.
If you want to move forward you need to make sacrifices. You need to forgo some of those weekends of partying, chilling on a couch watching movies, etc. to get involved in activities that will help you become better.
And one of the quickest ways to become better is to surround yourself with the right people. That’s people that are already living the way you want to live, are already experiencing the things you want to experience, and achieving the things you want to achieve.
If your friends are really good friends they’ll understand if you need to start spending less time with them so you can focus on yourself more. And if they aren’t understanding and supportive then they’re probably not the type of friends you want anyway.
If you’ve started an online business (and I’m always going to refer back to this because it’s what I do) then there is an array of opportunity for you to connect with people. Remember, one of the main reasons for working online is to become location independent, and connect with people globally. So forget about the literal concept of surrounding yourself with people, and turn to the online world. There are forums for just about every type of subject possible, Facebook has so many groups you can join, and if you’re in an MLM opportunity then chances are (if it’s a good one) there will be a number of Facebook groups specifically run by groups of people within that network.
The people running the groups are generally ones that have already reached success and now want to pass their wisdom down to others, so get involved and talk to them, and learn from them. Not only that, but the more people you see achieving the things you want to achieve (e.g. for my opportunity – people making daily sales, getting daily leads, quitting their jobs, travelling the world etc.) the more driven you will become because your mindset will shift. You will start to see and understand that IT IS possible and if other people can do it, so can you!
Obviously nothing beats speaking to people in real life, so if you do get the chance to meet people face to face then jump at that opportunity as well, my company puts on a number of events throughout the year for this exact reason as this is where the real breakthroughs happen. On top of that, stop being so shy and scared and just ask people where they’re from. I went ages thinking there was no-one in my company from Perth, turns out once I put the question out there I was able to plug into a group of people all from the same city and we’ve now set up regular catch ups as well.
It’s the same old story, once you get out of your comfort zone and put yourself out there, wonderful things start to happen. Don’t be afraid to go out and meet new people and listen to their stories and learn from them. You could meet that one person that is the answer to everything.
And above all, find yourself a mentor, one person you can trust and turn to whenever you need that little bit of extra guidance.

I would really love to connect with you and help you experience the same amazing feelings I’m now experiencing. And the reason I’m doing this is because I found the right people.
