It's true, birds of a feather, flock together - you will never see an Eagle flying with Pigeons. You should take a lesson from this. Be an Eagle.

You will become the average of the 5 people you spend the most time around, so you should take a long look at the company you keep and ask yourself, are these people helping me to grow or are they holding me back?

If you feel like your relationships with people are holding you back, then fire them! You are the boss of your destiny and you don't have to put up with second and third rate relationships. If people don't support you in your efforts to grow and become the most successful version of you, then it's time to let them go.

A lot of people are negative about life and the things around them. A lot of people life life with a victim mentality and think that the world is so unfair and bad things just happen to them. A lot of people sit and let life happen to them, and watch each day pass by as they struggle from day to day with no purpose other than to make it to the next day. A lot of people aren't successful.... but that's not you, you aren't like a lot of people. How do I know that? Because you are here, reading this, looking for ways to grow, to become a better you, you WILL be successful, just keep grinding, stand guard at the gates of your mind and do not let the negativity from these people into your head. You should feed your mind with positive content each day, and to help you out, I have put together a little gift for readers of this blog, the ULTIMATE SUCCESS RESOURCE PACK to get you on your way.

You cannot grow with a closed mindset. Place a baby shark into a fish bowl, and it will grow no larger that a few inches, place that same shark in a vast ocean, and it will develop and grow into an elite hunting machine at the top of the food chain. This concept stands true for you and I - we will only grow when we place ourselves in an environment conducive to it.

Once you have expunged the people from your life that add no value, the next thing you need to do is to rebuild your circle of influence with other people who are also on a mission to grow, become better and lead successful lives, making a positive impact on the world, people who are at least at your level or ideally above.

When we put ourselves around people who are further ahead than we are, it forces us to up our game, as opposed to being around people who are not as far along than us which makes us feel 'comfortable'. If you find you are the brightest bulb in the room, then get a new room, because let me tell you from experience, being 'comfortable' is deadly to your dreams. 

That is why you need, let me just say that again to emphasize it a little more, YOU NEED to get yourself around people that are going to challenge you and stimulate your growth. If you have read 'Think And Grow Rich' (which I hope you have - but if not, you can download it as part of our free success resource pack by CLICKING HERE), then you will know that one of the key principles of success identified as being present in all of the great leaders that were studied, was that they leveraged the power of the mastermind.

The mastermind is when 2 or more people co-ordinate their thoughts with a focus on achieving a common goal. It has been said that when 2 people put their minds together, the resultant thinking is greater than the sum of the parts, in other words, it is as if their is an extra mind working in tandem to solve a particular issue.

You should first identify a person of likable and trustworthy character who shares a goal with who you can work together with towards achieving a definite goal. Agree with each other how you will help each other to achieve your goal and develop a plan to map out what you will do to achieve it. Work to keep each other on track and accountable towards your shared goal and encourage growth in the other, and you will go far together. 

In today's age, it is even easier to find people with the same interests, goals and objectives as you. All you have to do is go online, there are countless forums, groups and networking events going on all over the world that you can become a part of, grow your network and build your ultimate mastermind. You can even subscribe to my mailing list if you want positivity, motivation and accountability straight to your inbox - just CLICK THIS LINK, add your details and join the family where success is the only option.

Remember, if you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, then go together.
