Gay 101. Surround yourself with success.

Me as a giant from a Fan.

We all know that there are people in our lives who are good or bad for us. The kind of people we surround ourselves with have a huge influence over us and the kind of people we are. Attitudes and opinions rub off.

A friend of mine used to say “if you surround yourself with losers all you’ll be is a loser”. I don’t think this is true. There are many people around the world who have lifted themselves out of difficult circumstances. It took a real change in my own level of self-awareness and a much more honest look at who I am before I was able to see the bad influences in my life and begin working towards removing them, I’m still working on it now.

Best-Success-QuotesPeople don’t only influence us in negative ways. Being surrounded by the wrong people has helped me see just how self-destructive I could become and helped me to take a different path.ย Over the last couple of weeks I’ve spent a lot of time surrounded by the most motivated, creative and accomplished people I have ever met and the result is that my own aspirations have gotten a huge booster shot. Not only is being surrounded by professional people having a really positive effect on my own professional focus but is also seeping in to my personal life. I am beginning to see that the things I have been dreaming of are actually possible. Being able to share my story with those people and discover that many of them have shared my own experiences has taken away much of the angst I have been feeling about my own life, and how I have been measuring my own success.

Seek out the kinds of people you yourself would like to be, whether professional or personal, having aspirational role models in your life is a huge help especially when things get rough.
