Surround Yourself With Successors
Are Future Millionaires In Your Circle?
Everyone wants to be successful, everyone wants to be a millionaire, everyone wants to be rich or wealthy, but what are we doing to achieve that goal?
Proverbs 27:17 Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.
For starters, we can surround ourselves with like-minded people, those who are working toward SMART goals to enhance themselves. We also want to surround ourselves with people who can encourage and motivate, versus discourage. Proverbs 27:17 says “Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.” It is extremely important to have someone who can pick you up when you’re down, provide you with ideas and suggestions, and is honest and trustworthy. Although you want someone in your circle who will uplift you, you need to make sure you are doing the same for them. Don’t be that person in your circle who hoards information, never encourages anyone, but soaks up all of the useful information. You need to be an asset as well. When one man sharpens another, both parties are able to become stronger, more intelligent, and build a broader network. This is what success is all about.
Have you ever heard the saying “you are who you hang around”? Most of the time when people say this it’s in a negative light, but it doesn’t have to be. Let this be you, be the people you hang around. Be one of those future millionaires that you hang around. Strive to put yourself in a circle that you want to be like. I’m sure you are asking yourself how do I find people who are likeminded and will motivate me to complete my goals. There are several places; networking events, mastermind groups, social media groups (Facebook and LinkedIn), meet-ups, your college/university alumni association, and your local chamber of commerce to name a few.
Think about those in the public eye who are successful, do you think they hang around people who are negative, with no aspirations? Absolutely not! They hang around people who are just as successful or more successful than they are. Make sure you are around people who can teach you something. You can never learn enough. If you are always the one teaching people in your circle and never learning, it’s time for you to evaluate who you surround yourself with.
Proverbs 13:20 says “whoever walks with the wise becomes wise,
but the companion of fools will suffer harm.”
Be the person who walks with the wise so that you can become wise. If you are with people who aren’t wise, how can you become wise?
Remember, surround yourself with successful, wise, motivational people.
