The people we surround ourselves with have far more of an impact upon us than we do on them.
We can try to be an outlier. We can try to be different. But ultimately the most effective way to achieve our full potential is to find people who are motivated by the same things we are.
People who want to push as hard as we do. People who are trying to make a difference. People close to us who force us to become better versions of ourselves.
People who will hold us accountable.
How might you be unwittingly holding yourself back? What can we change?
Not only are we partially a product of our environment, but we also get to decide what it looks like.
What will you choose?
