Surround yourself with people you want to be like
"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great."
I agree with this quote. I believe that if you surround yourself to those people who lift you up, encourage and support you, chances are you’ll be successful.
Don’t listen to those who belittle you, slow you down and hold you back towards achieving your goals. They are dream crushers and these people are negative. They complain a lot, make excuses, they are very toxic and they bring your energy level down. Sometimes it’s hard if a spouse, or family is the toxic person., but you gotta be strong and stick to your goals, even in those around you don’t believe in you.
Surround yourself with people who can give you positive yet honest feedback and support. Those people who want you succeed, will support you, inspire you, encourage you no matter how scary the outcome could be because they know your dreams are important to you, they will be there for you, they will be your number one fan, and will believe that you can become great.
Take a look at the people around your life. Who supports you? Who brings you down? Only you can tell.
Don’t let anyone dictate your life. It doesn’t matter what your ambitions are, what matters most is you don’t give into that voice inside that begs you to be safe, be forgotten and not make any difference in this world.
I hope this message brings you inspiration.
