You’re only going to be as good as the closest five people in your life. Outside of your immediate family who do hang around? What are they doing daily? Do they share in your victories and uplift you when you fail?

If you have friends who sit around and gossip all day, guess who their going to gossip to.You! Do you really have time to sit around doing nothing while everyone else is living out their dreams? If you have friends who’re accomplishing goals it’s going to inspire you to strive to meet your goals.

When you’re trying to achieve a goal, you should want people around who have been through what you’re going through. They can help when you feel like giving up, they can tell you the necessary steps to take to achieve the level you’re trying to reach.

If you have people on your team who aren’t really happy for you feed them with a long hand spoon. That means it’s okay to be cool with them but watch yourself telling them your goals and plans. You want to have some encouraging people on your team. It’s people in your life who won’t clap when you win and that’s perfectly fine.

Just make sure you support those who support you. Always remember who has encourage you. Remember who comes out to your events and shares your business. Not the ones who show up for the photo opportunity. I’m talking about the ones who sit with you and cry when a deal falls through. The one who picks you up and says let’s figure this out.

Do you have the right people backing you?
