I recently spoke with a consultant and marketer who will reach $10 Million in sales this year.
He’s an incredibly smart guy. Full of integrity. And his business has grown over 10X in the last 12 months.
Surround yourself with people more successful than you are. Whether you go to the right types of events, join a specific club or work with a coach.
It was a beautiful day and both of us were in Hawaii. We went for a walk along the beach and I asked him, “What was the biggest factor in your success?”
He didn’t hesitate and said “Surrounding myself with people more successful than myself.”
You’ve likely heard this idea before. There are countless articles on it.
How does spending time with successful people help you?
From my own experience I can tell you that as soon as you start hanging out with people that have achieve what you want to achieve and are living the kind of life you’d like to have, it starts to rub off on you.
I’m not talking about some magical transformation…
What happens is actually quite simple.
Imagine that you’re currently making $100,000 a year. If everyone around you is making $50,000- $100,000 it means the people around you are doing the things that people who make $50-$100K do.
Now, let’s create another image. This time everyone around you is making $1M-$2M+. Now you’ll start learning how millionaires think about life and business and what they do to keep and grow that level of income and success.
This isn’t rocket science. It’s exactly how life works.
Take a good look around you and see who you’re surrounding yourself with? What type of influence do they have on you? Are they at the level of success that you want to be?
If not, it’s a great opportunity to make a change NOW.
Surround yourself with people more successful than you are. Whether you go to the right types of events, join a specific club or work with a coach. What matters is that you expose yourself to people who are more successful than you are so that you can learn from them and put those learning’s into practice right away.
