The Circle of Success: Why Who You Surround Yourself With Matters

We often hear the phrase, "You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with." But have you ever taken a hard look at your inner circle? After a recent meet-up with top-performing CEOs in the US, I'm reminded again how your circle can either be your rocket fuel or your anchor.

The Company You Keep

Life is a mirror that reflects your choices, and that includes the people you share your journey with. If your go-to circle radiates low energy and a limited outlook, how can you expect to elevate yourself? You can't climb a mountain while carrying sandbags, can you?

The Impact of a Positive Circle

On the flip side, being around proactive, forward-thinking individuals serves as a catalyst for your growth. The collective passion in such a circle creates an environment that naturally propels you forward. Think of it as a success infection—you catch it from the company you keep.

The Mastermind Effect

I'm not just pontificating here. As someone who's coached over 650 business owners in the health and wellness sector through PracticeOwner, I've seen the transformative power of good company firsthand. If you feel your current circle isn’t aligned with your vision and goals, perhaps it's time to consider joining a mastermind or coaching program.

Final Thoughts: Time to Elevate

So, take a few minutes to evaluate your tribe. Do they resonate with your goals and vision? If not, it might be time to seek out new spaces filled with coaches and peers who've achieved the milestones you're gunning for.

Your dream life isn't going to build itself, and the company you keep can make all the difference.
