Importance of Surrounding Yourself with Good Company for Success


Importance of Surrounding Yourself with Good Company for Success

The people you keep around, such as friends, family, business, partners, or colleagues, can have the greatest impacts on your life.

It is crucial to surround yourself with good energy and positive vibes. Negativity is rather infectious, and it can be an obstacle to success. If you want to achieve your goals, then you must get rid of the negative people around you.

A wrong comment from your “friend” can ruin your confidence, and an attack on your self-esteem is bad for your organization and your business team.

Nothing takes you off track faster than surrounding yourself with negative people. It is better to know early enough that pleasing everyone is a myth. You can’t satisfy everybody, and trying to do that will only drain you. Sadly, doubters and people who always have something bad to say will always be there but you must ignore the naysayers .

 Surround yourself with like-minds and people who add value to your life. Disconnect from bad relationships and associate with the relevant players in your field, gain from them and maybe adopt some of their practices as you progress as a profit-making leader on your journey to success.

When you align yourself with people who are beneficial to your personal life and business goals, it transforms everything.

As a business support expert with big goals myself, I have attended seminars, virtual summits, conferences and several educational activities to improve myself. I seize the opportunity to learn, polish my skills, and network with many bright minds. Relating with entrepreneurs who are more advanced in their career than you translates nicely to your personal and career growth as well. Learning is a constant which is why it is essential to surround yourself with people you can learn good skills or traits from. It will in turn encourage you to do better. I will share with you some steps you can take today to surround yourself with good company:

Firstly, say goodbye to your negative peeps. If you know someone who is constantly in turmoil or serious drama; the ones who would never manage to elevate themselves, avoid such a vibe at all cost. Don’t feel bad cutting off such individuals . Life is difficult enough and dealing with extra baggage would only weigh you down. We don’t always win, and there will be obstacles and nay-sayers along our path to success. During these times, nothing feels better than hiring someone you can share your fears and doubts with like friends and mentors. Mentors that not only listen, but also cheer you on to be the best you can be. It gives you the energy you need to conquer in life, and they help you to propel forward. 

So find, and focus on relationships with those who can share their wings and positive vibes and help you realise that you can do the same. Life is too short for negativity so find people who are smarter than you, and be with people who support you. Many entrepreneurs and business people aspire to be the smartest people in the room on virtually every topic, but if you’re always the smartest person, you’re actually limiting yourself. The right circle of influence raises the bar, helping us to set new lofty expectations of ourselves. Oftentimes, we don’t know what we are capable of until we see others achieve. When we surround ourselves with positive successful people, it consciously, and also subconsciously challenges us to be our best selves. So cultivate real life relationships with people who have already accomplished your goals.

Secondly, it’s time to rethink how we use our social media and focus on our real life relationships. Today’s social media feeds can often remind us what we can’t do, haven’t done or don’t believe we can accomplish. Remember that you can only see the finished work (wins) of your social media friends. You don’t know what it took to achieve that fit unless they share it.

Seeing someone’s online highlight or reel doesn’t truly show you what goes on behind the scenes, and how much work it really requires. Spend time on the process of success, not just a result of being. Highly successful people are generally willing to share what it takes to make things happen. They have the ability to help you learn from the mistakes they made along the way, and the tricks/tips to help you reach your goals faster. So seek out leaders of your industry and get some real experience from them.

Thirdly, if you are an introvert who doesn’t like leaving your shell, that’s fine. Not everyone can attend summits and that’s fine too. I recommend that you choose a coach who has an active social media presence and consume their contents. Make them friends in your head. For example, if you want to promote your business, listen to daily podcasts of the speaker you resonate with, so bring him/her along on your daily drive work. Learn and apply some of their tips and knowledge. That way, you have surrounded yourself with a good company that will contribute to your success. I guarantee that you will see changes.

Finally, make sure that you are also a good vibe. Be teachable, be open and don’t hold back knowledge. As you are taking from someone’s wealth of experience, ensure that you give back within your field as well. If you found this article useful, kindly share with anyone you think it might benefit. Good luck!
