Your Peers and Your Success

Having great Peers means achieving your Lifestyle dreams more quickly and with more enjoyment.

IMPORTANT: You are the average of the five people you spend most of your time with.

It is absolutely essential to surround yourself with people who have the highest possible levels of integrity, energy, excellence, ability, joy, Godliness and so on.

Look around! Who do you spend most of your time with? Workmates, friends, clients? Honestly evaluate whether your peers are taking you up, taking you down or keeping you where you are. If they are not taking you to higher levels, you must make a change.

Always surround yourself with positive people who are going places and living their dreams. Seriously consider taking a job that pays less but allows you to get close to people you really admire. Join a group that is full of the kinds of people who will challenge you to live life to the full. Find a mentor who has achieved what you want to achieve.

Life is too short to allow your peers to hold you back.

And remember, you are someone else’s peer too. Make sure you are encouraging and challenging those around you to higher and greater achievements.

Tip #1 Identify One or Two Key Areas

You do not want to reinvent your whole peer group in one attempt. Pick one or two of the key areas in which you need to learn and grow and be challenged. If you have one area of your life you are completely passionate about but you have no mentor or peer, choose that area. For example, you might want to be a great guitar player, or an excellent marathon runner.

Tip #2 Identify Three or Four People

Find three or four people in that area who you can learn from and get inspiration from.

Tip #3 Model Them

Find out as much as you can about those people. Google them, visit them if you know them, find out what other people have said about them. See if there are articles or documentaries on them. Read books they have written. Attend their seminars.
