Becoming an entrepreneur starts with the desire within your heart. That desire grows within you and starts effecting the way you think. But you will never follow it as long as the people around you are weights that are pulling you down like an anchor. Chose your friend wisely!
Associating high doesn’t mean you have to hang out with rich people. It means one has to connect with people who share the same passion with high priority. You can’t workout with a person that’s not as committed to the gym as you are. The sad truth is, that person will never push you beyond your limits or inspire you to do more. However, if you surround yourself with gym addicts, you’ll even feel guilty when you didn’t finish your set or skip a day of a workout routine.
Balance is what we all need. Embrace the fact that you will meet people who are great to hang out with, even if they don’t share the same goals like you do. They bring a special balance into your life and help you grow as a person. These type of friends also strengthen our weaknesses. They can’t teach you how to become rich, but they can help you focus on other beautiful things in life. Know that there’s no friend with whom you can do everything!
Entrepreneurship is a very big word. Every business executing individual can be referred to this term. The big problem is that many of the individuals I’ve associated with only concentrate on a few aspects and that’s the reason why their horizon isn’t as big as they think. When it comes to money, I have do admit that not many can keep up with them. But what about other topics? That’s why I like to have many friends from different fields. How many of us can say that they’ve argued with their friends about archaeology or paleontology? Make sure your friends have thirst for knowledge and are willing to learn. If not, you’ll stay the same as you are now. Only your bank status will change. For the positive I hope.
This is the most dangerous type of situation. Imagine you and a comrade have been working very hard to make it. You’ve been through rough times and good times together. Your bond seems unbreakable. Someday, your hard work finally pays off and one of you is rewarded. To be precise, destiny chose you for the job both of you were dreaming of. This is when you notice if your respective companion is a well wisher or not. Pay close attention to those who don’t clap when you win!
Sometimes being humble doesn’t work as well as being aware. – Drake
Pay close attention to how your friends behave when others succeed. I would be lying if I said I’ve never been jealous, but no one can be mad at me for my thoughts as long as I haven’t done them wrong. What causes trouble are jealous actions and expressions, but not thoughts. Jealousy is just a part of the human nature. The best way to find out if your friends are well wishers is by complimenting others in front of them and speaking about the success of people that they personally know.
