There is no better, faster way to achieve your goals than having a supportive group of people in your life.
We’ve all heard stories of the changes people have made in their lives – they’ve built successful businesses, gotten their dream job, met the love of their lives, lost weight – all as a result of connecting with the right people.
Who we surround ourselves with is totally within our control.
So, what’s keeping us all from doing this? Because to meet the right people, you have to change what you’re doing now, and change is a scary thing. But, you can do it!
Below are 5 simple things you can do, starting today, that will help you create the supportive environment you need to make your dreams come true.
1. Make a list of who you already know
Odds are that you, or the people close to you, already know people who could change your life.
Go through your existing networks including friends, colleagues, former schoolmates, and friends of friends.
Who’s already connected to you in some way that could help you get closer to your goals? Make a list and then start setting up lunches and meetings to reconnect.
2. Remove toxic people from your life
This one is difficult and can be painful, but it’s an absolute must. Identify the people in your life who put your ideas down; the ones who never support or encourage you.
Make a list. Recognize how badly the wrong people can hinder your progress toward your goals and spend less time with them.
You’ll be amazed at how quickly your self-esteem will grow and you will begin to believe in yourself and your abilities.
3. Build your community
No matter how small your town is, you need to find people to connect with who can help you along your path to success.
Check Facebook, Craigslist, and/or your local newspaper for groups to join or events that are happening that will connect you to other people who share your passions.
Then watch how fast your support group grows.
4. Create new surroundings
If you leave your toxic friends but have no one else to hang out with, you’ll more than likely go right back to them. You have to begin to attract the right people into your life.
This can start as simply as seeing one inspiring friend for an hour every week or so.
Take your passions and start to overlay them with the people in business and in life who see the world the same way. Take inspiration from everyone.
5. Share your special talents with others
All of us have talents we can share with others. What are your unique strengths, talents and passions? Are you good at designing logos?
Then offer to help someone with a logo for their new business. Volunteer work is also a great way to meet new people.
Nothing feels better and nothing creates faster, more genuine connections.
Now the choice is yours. You can choose to continue to hang around the people who tell you you’re stupid for thinking things could be different.
Or you can choose to surround yourself with people who inspire possibility. Either way, one thing is for sure: the people around you will change your world. Start today!
