Success Secrets: Surround Yourself With Successful People

Success Secret #1: Hang Out With Successful People

“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” – Jim Rohn

I can’t stress how incredibly powerful it is to learn from people who have already achieved what you desire to achieve. If you focus on finding people that are success-driven, successful, and of similar interests, you will be inspired by successful people who take action to their ideas and possibilities, and make their dreams a reality.

Successful people are focused on finding solutions. They don’t allow themselves to be controlled or limited by fear. They are too busy with being productive and creative, while holding a positive mindset and emotional state. Successful people take responsibility for their actions and outcomes, no matter what they may be. Successful people are also life-long learners and constantly work at educating themselves.

More Successful People Secrets

Here’s a few other secrets most successful people do that you can do, too:

Stay accountable. Work with someone who can help you stay accountable, and who will push you to do something you don’t know how to do, or who will force you to stretch.

Read. Look up books that include material that exemplifies the life you’d like to live, and teach you things you’d like to do. Feed your mind with educational and positive material.

Join. Find networking groups or clubs, blogs, forums, personal growth seminars and network with successful people. Associate with them and learn from them.

Set goals. Start with small achievable goals and work towards more challenging goals. Setting goals will give you direction for improvement, positive change, and growth.

Get a mentor. Most successful people in the world have or have had mentors. A mentor will give you guidance, support, encouragement, and accelerate your learning curve.

You Are Who You Hang Out With

“If you hang out with chickens, you’re going to cluck and if you hang out with eagles, you’re going to fly.” – Steve Maraboli

If you’re not happy with your income or your job, the best thing you can do is to start hanging out with successful people, and positive people. Pay attention and be aware of who you’re hanging out with. You don’t have to ditch your “old” friends or dysfunctional or pessimistic family members. Spend less time with negative family members and friends. Make new friends with people who are ambitious and very successful.

Successful You

“Life has no limitations, except the ones you make.” – Les Brown

Take a chance, make a change or be open to change, keep a positive attitude, and hang out with people that make you feel good and encourage you to be the best person you can be in this world, to live your very best life. After all, the only person responsible for the quality of your life, is you.

Accountability Is Key

Do you have an accountability partner? Someone who you check in with regularly to keep on track and to ensure you get done what you say you’re going to do. It could be a coach or mentor, but often is just someone of like-mind who doesn’t allow you to create excuses, and in turn you do the same for them.

Without accountability to yourself and others, is it possible to lead a successful life? I don’t personally believe you can. Anyone I know who has achieved a high level of success not only has a high level of accountability to themselves but they create an environment that keeps them on track even when they start to slip up. An accountability partner that you check in with once a week, or more frequently if you choose, can truly help you to get done all that you set out to do.

I don’t know about you, but when I tell someone else I’m going to do something I’m far more likely to get it done. The fact that I’ve told someone else about my goal gives me the drive to see it through so I don’t let them down. It’s one thing not to complete a task that I wanted to get done, and it’s an entirely different level when I’ve made that commitment to someone else. It’s by continually being accountable to myself and others that I build trust, and trust is an essential element if you ever want to be successful in life.
