Yes, I’m still out here. I know it’s been awhile since you’ve heard from me, but I promise, I’m still plugging along and will continue to give you interesting self-help information. Here’s an interesting thought for your Wednesday reading:
Have you ever heard the old saying, “Birds of a feather flock together?” You will never find a successful person who hangs out with a bunch of losers.
Like birds….successful people flock together.
In order to succeed in life – or anything you do, you might want to take a good hard look at the people you are most comfortable associating with. Are they a bunch of losers who stand around the water cooler and gripe about their jobs, their boss, their lives? If they are, then you may need to do a may need to do a “success” upgrade.
It may not be fair to be judged by the company we keep, but that is the way it works. That is the way others judge us…it is one of the cold hard facts of life. If you don’t feel comfortable in a certain situation, or with a certain group of people, it tends to tell you that you’re not in the right place. Sometimes that’s good –you’re on the way up. Sometimes it’s bad — you’ve successfully pulled yourself down to a lower level of achievement.
Maybe you dont have to abandon your old friends. Maybe you can help them to want to succeed and then you can be confident and comfortable at the same time. Maybe just tune in to the Oprah show sometimes. She has some interesting and inspiring visitors on. My personal favorite was James Ray, who said
“Look, I know it seems that many are going completely mad in the world right now. But you really do have the power within you—regardless of what everyone else does—to create the life you desire and deserve.”
Now, if your friends DO want to succeed, thats great and you can all become successful together…if they are happy being losers (or maybe just don’t have the motivation to go further in life), you have to move on. If you want to elevate yourself into a different level of success, you should start associating with people who are achieving that success. It’s that simple.
You must be surrounded by successful winners if you want to be a winner yourself.
