Sometimes the opportunities you get come down to who you know.
But that doesn’t necessarily mean a seemingly improbable connection is required to get anywhere.
See everyone you meet as someone you can help. Someone who has something to teach you. Not just for what they can do for you, but for what you can do for them.
You never know what might come of it.
The oft-repeated phrase is that, “You are the sum of the five people you spend the most time with”. Whether you agree with that or not, we are definitely heavily influenced by those around us.
So think about who those people are. Think about the way you want to see the world and the type of person you want to become. Then think about what you might need to help make that a reality.
