Associations have a great effect on building thought on one and attitude for positive attitude comes from positive surroundings. What, who and where you associate yourself with can bring out a definition of who you are and where you are headed. They are three areas you need to watch out for and these are:
PEOPLE: “you are an average of the five people you spend most of the time with” – Jim Robin. Evaluate the five people you spend most of your time and ask yourself is this how I want my inner-self to be built from.
ENTERTAINMENT: how educational is your entertainment? Is it constructive to your goal achievement and most notably how much time and money is it taking?
PLACES: certain places are not fond of successful people and as you move towards your goal distance yourself from certain places and shift to better places. You want to be a real estate agent then start going to places where other real estate agents and hear how the market is like in a social environment.
When evaluating your associations you need to ask yourself these questions?
DO THEY GO ALONG WITH YOUR DESIRE: associate with friends with the same desire as yours for two is better than one. In every entertainment there can be your desire; if you want to be a businessperson start reading business magazines such as Forbes and watch business channels like CNBCA not just any entertainment which doesn’t enlighten your desire. They are places which just motivate you and keep your desire up with the people there especially and others PLEASE avoid for they demotivate.
ARE YOUR ASSOCIATIONS ADDING VALUE TO YOU: some places are not worth the travel money you would have sacrificed for they add no to little value, just time wasting. Are you reaping something tangible from the entertainment you are seed your time in. on friends I would just say it is better to have no friends at all than to have a thousand friends who do not add value to you.
Most importantly the roots of associations are the people who are in your live for these determine your entertainment and places you go. So make sure to surround yourself with people who offer constructive criticism and at the same time believe in you and THAT YOU CAN AND YOU WILL DO IT.
