True success never happens in your comfort zone. You will not get anything from settling or remaining status quo. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with comfortable. The thing to remember is being comfortable will not make you better or grow. To get to that next level, you have to do something more than you’ve done.
Getting motivated is definitely a key which helps push you to greater levels. Sometimes that motivation comes from within and many times, we need that motivation to come from others. Over the years, I have learned that we become who we decide to hang out with. We are who we are and we are who we are with. Ultimately, we have to decide who that is.
Make a commitment to surround yourself with people who push you to become better. If you have found yourself in a situation where you are typically hanging out with people who bring you down, it’s time to make a change. It’s important that you hang around with others who you can share your goals with, and those with whom you know in your heart want to help you and encourage you to reach your full potential.
Now, we all have bad days and we all go through failures. We certainly don’t want to hang out with those who are naysayers, especially during these times. These type of people will have the “I told you so” mentality. This is why it’s so important, especially during the difficult times, you have people in your corner who are going to spur you on to fight through the challenges and come out victorious. Surround yourself with people who know your potential and encourage you to demand your very best.
Keep in mind that although we want to make sure we have people in our corner who are going to encourage us and push us, we also need those who will hold us accountable. Make sure that you are surrounding yourself with people who will call you out when they see you getting off track. We all need people who are going to get real with us when we are making mistakes in life. Surround yourself with people who know you can do better than what you are doing and will tell you so. These are the people who will tell you what you need to hear and not what you want to hear.
Are you ready to go to the next level? It’s time to surround yourself with people who will make you jump out of your comfort zone. They will make you climb higher and push you to greater heights.
Here’s the amazing part of all of this. When you surround yourself with these people, you will find that you are doing the same for them also. Pushing them the way they push you. You will both be going to a higher level because of that push.
Remember, you are who you hang with! Let’s all go to the next level together.
Have a super successful week!
