You become the people you surround yourself with. If you hang out with positive thinkers, guess what happens to the way you think? If you hang out with high earners, guess what happens to your salary expectations? If you knock about with motivated individuals, you reckon you’ll remain unmotivated?
Thoughts, words and behaviors are contagious. The people that surround you rub off on you and you have little control over it, especially if you are unaware of this fact. Keep strong company.
If you can picture yourself achieving all you have ever wanted, but can’t picture those same people beside you once you get there, then perhaps you are in the wrong company.
Rolling solo is sometimes preferable to the wrong company. At least you can control your own influence.
