Kevin Willett says to surround yourself with people who will help you make an impact
Motivational speaker Jim Rohn famously said that “we are the average of the five people we spend the most time with”. I think this is one of the most important quotes I have read because it is so true. Think about the people you know who are successful, I bet they hang out with other successful people right? How about the people you know who are negative? Who are they hanging out with? Probably other negative people. I want you to stop reading for a moment and think about the 5 people you spend the most time with and ask yourself what role do they play in helping you reach your goals. In some cases you may have to make changes in your life. Now I understand this may be difficult because some of these people may be long time friends or family members and I am not telling you that you have to remove them from your life. I am just suggesting that you minimize the impact they have. I am very careful who I tell my dreams to because we all have people in our lives that are negative and fill your head with doubts. Please don’t let them do that. I have built a small team of people who I discuss my ideas with. I trust them to be honest with me and tell me their concerns with my bad ideas and encourage me with my good ideas. Spend some time thinking about who you want on your team. I think you will see a big impact in your life.
