The wise successful people keep saying that it is very important to carefully select the people you associate with, your friends and family. I have learned to pay careful attention to people and their energy. Some people just seem to have good or even amazing energy and others the opposite.
I pay very close attention to this now, on a daily basis. And I have gained some benefit from spending more time with good energy people. There is a lot to be said about going to events as well, where everyone has good energy, such as personal growth seminars, business events etc. The energy in the room will no doubt get into you when you are at these events.
Then there is also the advice from the very successful, to read a lot of books. This I have started to do more and more over the last year. And it definitely has changed my perspective on a lot of things in life and it has also resulted in different types of conversations with some people I know. In particular, business owners. Many times people will communicate about issues they have or are contemplating a decision about a current situation. Being able to give good advice…based on leadership from the top success leaders in the world is a valuable resource to be knowledgeable about and providing others with that advice is a great thing to do.
Those are some of the benefits of surrounding yourself with books by successful people and watching videos by successful people as well.
Some of the people I have been into lately is Ray Dalio and Jack Ma. One of the most fascinating things in Ray Dalio’s Principles book is that he says that when you put a left brained person with a right brained person they will frustrate each other. So much for opposites attract!
As far as business goes I recommend Eban Pagan, Ray Dalio, Jack Ma, Tony Robbins (business mastery is great). In particular, for the modern vision to technology and how a business is successful with it Eban Pagan and Jack Ma are very good at providing insights about it. For business principles Tony Robbins and Ray Dalio provide a lot of insight into how principles work in any business.
As Jack Ma says, when he was growing up he would hear certain things from his parents, friends and school then what he heard from Western Tourists in China.
In this world, we are either producers or consumers. Producers make money and consumers give their money and attention to producers.
Surround yourself with Producers and you will become one too!
