Growing up, I feel like I was taught that you need to put your head down and do what you were told from 9-5 for 40 years and that’s how you’ll make a living.
No one ever told me that the people you surround yourself with will bring you up. And that anything is possible with enough determination.
Not to mention, our schools did not teach us much about financial literacy, and communication skills.
But the real point here is that you do not always have to be the best-fit person to accomplish your goals. You really just need to surround yourself with people you want to be like. They will rub off on you.
My goals are related to 2 big categories in life:
So, when I make new friends, they fall into either one of these groups. This is because we become the 5 people we spend the most time with.
If I spend all of my time with the people that already have the skill sets and habits that allow them to accomplish aspects in these 2 categories of goals, then that will rub off on me.
Better yet, I get to experience my friends’ journey alongside them.
I used to think that sitting in a room by myself and working on becoming great at skiing or business was the best way to accomplish my goals.
Boy was I wrong.
In fact, I have made more progress by literally hanging out and shooting the shit with skiers and business people I want to be like. Simply because they rub off on me.
What type of person should you be spending more time with?
