The Company You Keep - Surround Yourself With Successful People and You Will Become a Success!

Jul 24th 2010 at 6:34 PM

In order to be a huge success in the internet marketing industry or any potentially lucrative industry for that matter, you have to be in the right frame of mind. Have you ever noticed how the wealthy and affluent mix and mingle with each other? What do you think they are doing? They're networking. Exchanging information. Exchanging ideas. They encourage and inspire each other. They're the elite. This is a tough industry. It's very easy to "give in", to "give up". To throw your hands to the sky and say, "forget it." It's this type of negative thinking that can turn a potential success into a failure.

Wealthy people are wealthy for a reason. Not all who have wealth are born into it. Some start with nothing and then build themselves into financial powerhouses through hard work and positive thinking. Also through learning all they can from people who were already wealthy--already where they wanted to be. Success comes with learning and who better to learn from than those who have already accomplished what you want to achieve. Think about it for a second. If your goal was to become a scholar, doesn't it make sense to hang around other scholars? If your goal was to become a master musician, doesn't it make sense to study those that have already mastered the art? The same principals apply if your goal is to become through internet marketing. Associate yourself with other people who have become wealthy doing the same thing.

A good way to put all this into perspective is to look at the flipside of things. Some of you may know someone who is ALWAYS negative. They never have a good thing to say about anything. They never try to lift you up. In fact, they may try to bring you down. If you really look at their lives you'll find that they don't have a whole lot going for themselves. They may have dead-end jobs, very little money, and an existence that is more than likely even less than mediocre. Those people are stagnant in life for whatever reason. They have no drive, no ambition, no desire to become anything more than what they are.

Or maybe some do, but they become so complacent with their situations that they become jaded on the possibilities for something better. And so they keep attracting the negativity into their lives, oftentimes, even inadvertently bring those negative vibes into the lives of those around them. If you want to be a success at anything, you simply don't need these types of people in your inner circle. Surround yourself with positive people. Surround yourself with success!

I agree if you want to make $30,000 a year you hang with people that make $ 30,000 a year if you make a million a year you hang with people that make a million a year. And there is no place for negative in network marketing you need positive like minded people around you on going self development.

I think this is a great rule to live by. You should always surround yourself with people who are positive and doing what you are doing or want to do. Great article. Keep them coming.

Birds of a feather flock together. If your friends are slackers, you most like are too.
