Episode 17 - Level Up Your Environment

Do you look at the people around you and say: "If my life looks like that in 5, 10, 20 years, I will be incredibly happy!" Of course, you should be happy now too, but that's a different conversation.

My question, really, is are you surrounding yourself with people that push you to be better?

Or are you surrounded by people who want to keep you where you are? It might not even be intentional. Don't get me wrong. I'm not implying that your friends or family are actively trying to hurt you, although sometimes that might actually be the case.

But if you have big goals, and the people in your life are constantly encouraging you to set those goals aside because there's this awesome party tonight, or everyone's getting together at so and so's place for a BBQ, or "why are you messing around with that business thing again?" then it might be time to get around people who want to push you.

Show me your top 5 friends and I'll show you exactly where you will be in 5 years. And if that works for you, then that's amazing. This might not be for you.

But if you know there's something more, and if you are willing to admit that your environment is not helping you get to where you want to be, then it's time to level up and figure out ways to get around people who are going to stretch you.

Find yourself in a room where you feel like a little kid at the big kids table and you're on your way.
