Who do you surround yourself with?
Supporters or Critics?
Cheerleaders or Complainers?
Allies or Attackers?
Defenders or Defamers?
Friend or Fretter?
Who we surround ourselves with is paramount to our success. The business battle is hard enough to succeed in, we don’t need those in our circle pulling us down.
This week, take inventory of those around you. Are they helping or hindering? Are they encouraging you or dissuading you?
When you build something that matters – something that makes a difference and challenges the norms – there will be blowback. It is in our nature to resist change. However, those who have the courage to press forward and make a ruckus, believe something better is on the other side of the challenge.
Surround yourself with people who believe in your mission.
