66 Tips For Better Networking - #14

Route 66 - The Journey Toward Success

Soar With Eagles

If you want to achieve more, you need to associate with those who are more successful than those whom you share your goals and dreams with are ones that can help you see the path toward success. Do not hang with people who belittle your vision.

I once heard Debra Jones, an accomplished professional speaker, proclaim "If you are the most successful person in your circle of friends....YOU NEED NEW FRIENDS!" She was not suggesting that you should leave the cool people in your life behind just because of the size of their bank account, nor should you only select people as friends because they are rich....but she was making it very clear that you need individuals in your life that challenge you to go farther than you have before.

There is an old saying "If you want to soar with eagles, don't hang out with chickens!"

Achievers motivate you not just by their accomplishments, but someone who is truly successful....emotionally, spiritually and financially,.... will never discourage your goals. Instead they look for ways to assist others in achieving greatness. Everyone should have friends in their life who enthusiastically support your efforts toward success.

To find this kind of person you need to go out an look for them. You will tell a lot of people about your dreams, which will lead to many whom will discredit your aspirations. Have a thick skin and do not become discouraged by those who do not welcome your efforts or try to knock you down. Keep going, and you will discover the really amazing people who are part of your destiny.

I know, I have friends like this. I feel that I have to pinch myself to prove I am awake, as it sometimes seems like a dream to have people helping me along my journey toward success. But I also have encountered many naysayers. There are always those who appear to be friends, who disappoint. Oh, and there are those who actively attempt to undermine. Life is not easy, and there is no magic wand that can help you avoid these negative beings. But don't let the bad guys get you down. Just one supportive person can change your whole future.

Keep your eyes open of those people who will help raise you up, and the sky is the limit!

Have A Great Day.
