In episode 40 of the Fit Men Movement podcast we discuss how important it is to focus on surrounding yourself with the right people. This isn’t just a health and fitness matter, it also applies to your financial well being or professional career. Having the right people around you in these keys areas will provide accountability and almost force you to improve.
Success doesn’t occur in a vacuum. In reality, there are a number of factors that lead to being successful. Hard work and drive are always necessary for success, but your personal improvement leading up to your success can be greatly driven by other people.
The people we choose to surround ourselves with impacts the way we think, act and feel on a day-to-day basis. In many ways, your personal successes are determined much like success in any other aspect of life. A young football player is going to succeed if he surrounds himself with people who push him to become better, not people who distract him from his potential.
As men, we are responsible for ourselves. Surrounding yourself with the right type of people can help success come more naturally to you than being around those who might hold you back.
