This principle I was told many years ago. “Surround yourself with success” I was always told. “You become the company you keep.”
Many people shrug this off and say its crap but it really is true. Just think about it – you’re constantly influenced by everything around you.
Its the power of peer pressure, with or without your knowledge.
Many times you will find yourself wasting time with a group of people.
If you want to become more successful you need to surround yourself with success.
If you don’t have any successful people you know to associate with, either find them or surround your mind with successful thoughts by listening to audio’s & reading books & watching video’s & also keep your mind focused on success.
You need to disassociate yourself with people that are putting you down. All they will be doing is sending bad messages into you and pushing all that success back out. “Ain’t nobody got time for that!”
Not saying diss your friends, just choose carefully the time you spend with them.
Think about what you say to people – are you sending out negative or positive words?
Say to yourself:
“The days of kidding myself are over. I really want to know what I have become & what I am becoming. I want to know what my strengths and weaknesses are, what has power over me, whats influencing me, what I’ve allowed to affect my life.”
Keep the weeds of negative influence from your life. Instead, ‘farm’ the seeds of constructive influence. You will not believe the harvest of good fortune you will reap!
