Choose the people you surround yourself with wisely because they will significantly impact your potential and how successful you become. Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions, especially during these unprecedented times. According to Mark Twain, small people always do that, but the greats make you feel that you too can become great.
We need someone who understands our potential even when we haven't yet accepted it ourselves. Surround yourself with people you can learn from, who can raise your vibration, who can help you become the very best version of yourself. Your time is short on this earth, and it makes no sense to limit your growth based on others' limitations. Don't you dare dull your shine for people who refuse to grow.
