The Importance of Surrounding Yourself with the Right People

Have you ever stopped to think about  which people you spend the most time with ? Do you know how that can influence your way of being and the achievement of your goals?

They say you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.

If you spend time with people with money problems, you probably have them too. If you spend time with conformist people, you will probably end up conforming too. If you spend time with people with goals and ambitions, wanting to improve, guess what you will be like😉

It is that simple and that inevitable. The people you spend the most hours with greatly influence your life. Little by little, their opinions, their attitudes and actions influence you without realizing it. Of course, the influence can be positive or negative, depending on what you want to achieve.

For example, if you want to be healthy and surround yourself with people who don't play sports and always eat badly, it will be very difficult for you to manage to maintain that habit, unless you have great  willpower.

In the end, we end up getting carried away by what most of the people around us do.

It is not about leaving your lifelong friends or your family behind because they have other goals or objectives, they will continue to be there to party, have a beer or tell you about your problems. It's about expanding your circle, looking for new people who think like you , who have similar goals. People with whom you can share your ideas, fears and challenges. Even people who have already achieved what you are looking for. Learn from them as much as you can to do it yourself.


On this topic of the circle of contacts, a next level is the  Mastermind .

A Mastermind is a  group of people who meet regularly to share their goals , review progress, help each other and give each other feedback.

It is not to meet for a few beers, it is a structured meeting and you have to prepare to really take advantage of it. It is a way of being held accountable to someone. I assure you that this  will keep you motivated to keep moving forward and not throw in the towel.


You may be wondering, okay, but how do I find new people to lean on to achieve my goals?

Today it is relatively easy to find people with your same interests thanks to the Internet.

1. Facebook groups

On Facebook you can find a huge number of groups of any theme. Tourism, Travel, Fashion, Beauty, Business, Online Marketing ... Search for the keyword that interests you and join them until you find someone who really has  interesting people and who interacts , with whom you can make contact even if only virtually.


In India it is not yet very exploited, but in the many countries  people have used this platform a lot to  find events that interested us and thus meet new people.

From entrepreneurial events and marketing to Yoga classes, group trainings and beach bonfires in California for new people in the city.

3. Offline networking events

If you are in Delhi or Bombay you will have it easier. In these cities there are  events every day of anything you imagine , you just have to look for them and be attentive. Each city has its own event pages. You only have to take a look at Google to find what you are looking for.

4. Payment communities

Sometimes you will realize that you just cannot reach your goals, because you lack knowledge or because you need an expert in something.

Communities  like  Quondos  by  Carlos Bravo and Alex Navarro.  O  Tribe  of  Frank Scipion  will help with this.

If you also you defend well in English, we recommend you to give you a tour  Fizzle  boys  Corbett, Chase and Kaleb  or you walk through the  Podcaster Paradise  of  John Lee Dumas.

5. Videos and Podcast

Finally, if finding new friends is complicated, we are going to give you a  little trick to feel surrounded by people every day who inspire  you and help you achieve your goals. It's all about the  podcasts and the videos.

There are many podcasts with  daily interviews with entrepreneurs  where you will find  motivation  and you will also learn a lot. Take a tour of Soundcloud ,  Ivoox  or  ITunes  and find the best ones.

We hope you liked this video and start  creating your circle of contacts  that you can lean on to go further.

Every successful person knows this "secret" and that is why they give a lot of importance to the people with whom they interact.
