Both in your personal and professional life you are influenced by the people you are surrounded by. Sometimes you are lucky enough to choose them but most of the time you are not. Whenever you have the chance, invest your time in cultivating your relationships with people you respect, due to their experience, their skills, their personal history or their attitude.
You will always receive something valuable if you try to have people with aspirations and dreams. on your team or among your friends. Usually these kind of people have good values and a high level of energy and commitment, and it is reflected in many areas of their lives (work, family, hobbies, sports, projects).
Human relationships are somewhat complicated. There are many variables involved that make a relationship between two persons work: personality, experience, education, culture , etc. And most of the time it is more a question of chemistry . You will never find the perfect alignment of these variables, and when you cannot choose the people around you, you can always try finding something to respect in the other person; that is always a good start. But whenever you have the chance to choose a new team member or a friend, raise the bar and look for people that can inspire you to achieve something.
Why is it important to surround yourself with this profile? Because attitude is contagious, and people who are looking for the best for themselves often think in abundance and want the same for those around them. The more focused a person is in their own objectives, the less focused he is in possessiveness, envy or criticism.
Give yourself the chance to start a virtuous circle in your social network. Surround yourself with people in motion, people who expect more of themselves and life, and work hard to get it.
