With who? With friends, family, mentors, and influencers who help them become the person they wanna be. Nothing new here. It’s just another way of saying:
Your network is your net worth.
Or the even more annoying:
You’re the average of the five people you hang around most.
God I hate platitudes. That’s why I use so many f-bombs and say old things in new ways… hoping it’ll mean something when I write it.
It’s true. Research says your success, more than anything, hinges on who you associate with.
Which is a big problem if you’re trying to become a millionaire, since 99% of the world is not.
So whaddya do?
You screen your input. You take inventory on your relationships and conversations and the things you’re seeing and reading and hearing and thinking.
You admit: damn, none of this is helping me make seven-figures.
So… you change it.
You spend less time with anyone who’s not lifting you up; and you find people that will. You trade gossip and news and worshipping celebrities and being the biggest NFL fan for books and podcasts and interviews and articles like this. You replace social media surfing with time spent alone, thinking.
You become obsessed. Each day, you take in as much “good” and keep out as much “bad” as you can.
And just watch: as your alignment improves, so will your income.
