As I type this, I’m listening to motivational speaker, Les Brown, and said something that really caught my attention.
You can accomplish any goal or dream that you might have in this life if you have the right mindset.
But, mindset isn’t everything, the environment also a lot to do with your success rate and so do the people that you surround yourself with.
Just a few minutes ago, Les said “Everybody don’t want you to win, everybody won’t be a part of your dream, you have to ask yourself, ‘”Who can I count on and who can I count out.'”
You see, when I heard that, it dawned on me, there are people that are just in your life because it benefits them.
Those people aren’t meant to be a part of your dream, they just want to be associated with you.
Everybody won’t be in your corner, there are people who will be in the opposite corner rooting against you, but will act like they are in your corner when they are around you.
Then, there are people who will be in your corner and support you no matter what, those are the people that you need to surround yourself with.
Don’t keep surrounding yourself with people who are in the opposite corner, surround yourself with people who will be in your corner no matter what.
Surround yourself with people who aren’t just around you to benefit from your past successes because those are the ones that will be with you even after you have reached your dream.
Without the right environment, you are not going to succeed, find the right environment for yourself and stay there, don’t let those who are just around you because it’s convenient.
You have the power in you to create a better life. But are you willing to sacrifice those people that drag you down, in order to find those who will bring you to the top?
