Thought-provoking article. What I am taking from it is that you have to be selective with who and what is around you because it will have an impact on your output. I strongly agree with that! When I decided to start my business, there were people who I considered friends who were not supportive at all. I wasn’t particularly upset at them, I just figured that they had a limited mindset. They didn’t quite understand why when I could just easily get a job. On the other hand, I have since met fascinating people who are also creating their own paths and are so excited to discuss ideas. Nowadays I naturally gravitate towards that group. Birds of the same feather flock together.
