The people whom you surround yourself with daily have a significant influence on your life.
As leaders, we must choose the people around us wisely because they will significantly impact our potential and how successful we become. If you surround yourself with wise people trying to improve and better themselves, those qualities will help push you to improve.
On the other hand, if you associate with people who engage in self-destructive habits, those habits will negatively affect you. 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.
Being around like-minded people will help you reach your goals and, in the process, allow you to become extraordinary.
