It does not matter how smart you are. It does not matter how talented you are, which skills you have, where you are born, or which family you came from.
All that counts if you want to be successful in life is the people you surround yourself with.
You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. – Jim Rohn
If you want to have greatness in your life, surround yourself with great people.
If you want happiness, fulfillment, honesty, confidence and empowerment in you life, surround yourself with happy, fulfilled, honest, confident and empowered people.
Who are the 5 people in your life that you spend time with. If your day has 24 hours, how many of those hours are spent with which people.
Who are they? What do they do with their lives? How ambitious are they, how successful have they been, how happy, optimistic, and enthusiastic are they?
Evaluate carefully if those people will really be those that will help you get to the next level you want to get to.
Do they push you forward when you come to them with new ideas, no matter what or do they tell you that what you have in mind will not work.
Will they keep you going once the birds pick up your seeds, once your seeds fall on shallow or thorny ground.
You will face many struggles along the way if you are seeking success and happiness. If you are the sower, your seeds will get picked up by the birds first and will not give a return.
Then they will fall on shallow ground, leaving you with nothing again. Then they will fall on thorny ground and the sun will shine so hot that your small plant will die after the first day. No return either.
Then, one day, the seeds will fall on good ground and finally give you the expected return and success. The only way you can make sure that you will fight your way through this hardship is with the right people by your side.
