Forge your own bubble

Actively construct your social environment. Don’t let it depend on proximity or chance or on how it has always been, but consciously plan which opinions, attitudes and life-philosophies you do and do not allow to be in your life.

You can’t hang out with negative people and expect to have a positive life.

Building your team

Surround yourself with people you admire.

We become like the people that we choose to expose ourselves to. So you can accelerate your personal growth in whatever direction you desire by spending time with people who already are who you want to become.

Work On Yourself

Your work is a reflection of you. If you want something different: improve yourself.

If you're not getting the results you're looking for, stop looking for better strategies. Instead, look inside. Try to continuously improve yourself, by expanding your vision, skills, and abilities.

Put Yourself In Difficult Situations

You need to put yourself into positions that create immense pressure. The kind of pressure that will either make or break you. 

This is how you purge out your weakness and small-mindedness. It won't be pretty. But it will change you.

The influence of entourage

Who we know and what we do influence what we'll become: What we do puts us around people. And the people we surround ourselves with help set the baseline for what we think is ok, what we think is possible and what we’re exposed to.
