Surround yourself with people that lift and support you.We all know people that seem to live a life of being down and trying to pull those around them down as well. These are the non achievers, the people that want to feel better about themselves not by become a better version of themselve, but by bringing the people around them down to their level. If you are trying to improve yourself you don’t want those sort of people around you.You want and need the people that inspire you to be and do better, the people who reach out and encourage you. But also are honest with you, helping others grow takes honesty. “Maybe you can do it this way…” is much more supportive and real than “you keep doing you”. Listen to those people that offer lessons or advice and make your choices around that.If you’re the smartest person in the room then you are in the wrong room. Look for those that you can share knowledge with and learn from. The only way up is lined with lifts not drag downs.
