“Don’t make friends who are comfortable to be with. Make friends who will force you to lever yourself up.”
~ Thomas J. Watson
Success coach Jim Rohn said, “You are the average of the 5 people you hang around with most.” It’s true. If you hang out with losers, unfortunately you’ll be a loser. But if you hang out with winners, you’ll become a winner. Because winners have a different way of thinking. And winners (particularly other successful entrepreneurs with whom you should be spending time) have often already encountered and overcome the challenges you face in your business.
How do you surround yourself with winners? Meet them at networking events. Seek them out (e.g., successful local business owners and executives). Etc.
Amelia Earhart also surrounded herself with winners. She was mentored and taught by famous air racer Frank Hawks and pioneering aviation teacher Anita Snook. She also spent significant amounts of time with ultra successful entrepreneur and book publisher George P. Putnam.
I think a good goal this month is for you to reach out to a local winner and invite them to join you for coffee or a drink.
Are You Thinking Like a Millionaire Entrepreneur?
Do you think millionaire entrepreneurs really:
- Work 18 hours/day?
- Are really smart?
- Are lucky?
- Were handed success based on who they already knew?
- Had it easy (e.g., they came from a rich family)?
Well, the answer is NO.
The real force driving successful entrepreneurs is how they think about things.
My Millionaire Mindset program will quickly and easily teach you how to adopt this mindset.
You don’t have to be born a successful entrepreneur.
