Whilst listening to a video on motivation, the speaker posed the question ‘who do you hang with’? It got me thinking, as in life there are two types of people we have around us.
- The friend that means well but holds us back.
- The friend that also means well and holds us accountable.
Don’t get me wrong, the advice that the second on gives you may be hard to take, but they want your success.
When you ask the same question in a business setting the answers change. I have always been asked to recommend trades people, companies and the like. Now in this context, you are being asked to recommend people who have your workmanship, business ethics and code of honour.
With the second context in mind, a business man said ‘Remember to surround yourself with people whose tongue in their head, matches the one in their shoes’. Basically if they talk the talk, they should also walk the walk!
I have the god fortune to work with people who have done everything that they have said they would do. Earlier this month I was in LA for three days. With people who share a common goal not a common past. 20,000 business owners in one conference. I have a goal to help as many people as I can realise and achieve their hopes and dreams.
If you want to know more about the clip please let me know. It’s more important that you find out for yourself.
Thank you for reading this post. As always, if you agree with it then please share.
Be the best part of someone’s day!
