Are we really known by the company that we keep?

January 23, 2017

 

When reading an article about success, I saw a comment that read something to the effect that we as individuals are the average of the 5 people that we most often associate with. If this is true, it makes sense that we need to associate mostly with positive, passionate, energetic, and knowledgeable people,right?! Gone from frequent association are those “the glass is half empty” folks. Excluded from this draconian sounding process are family members—you have what you have there!

 

The experts tell us that successful people surround themselves with other successful people. Doing so expands our “net-work”, into our “net-worth”. For in addition giving you all that is great with having a network, it also gives you access to people who embody the same traits as you aspire to, and speeds up the learning process to acquire additional, desirable traits. You will inherently rise to a new and higher standard, and push yourself to grow through mirroring another. On the flip side, if you surround yourself with negative, lazy, unmotivated, angry and depressing people, those same traits will rub off onto you! The moral of the story is to surround yourself with people who you would like to become.

 

This doesn’t mean that you should associate only with those people who think just like you do, rather you want a group that can also serve as your personal Board of Directors, and can provide a candid sounding board for you to bounce ideas. Having positive, motivated, and successful individuals part of your personal board of directors, changes the value of your network from having access to “things”, to giving you faster access to habits and thought processes that you would struggle with to create yourself.

 

I would enjoy your thoughts on this topic, and invite you to join the others on my mailing list at www.Bill-Hooker.com. Feel free to look around and take advantage of the complimentary services offered.
