Presence of mind and proximity are keys to success.
It’s important to surround yourself with positive people who encourage and motivate you. Remove yourself from negative people who bring you down and demotivate you. Pretty simple, right? Yes, it’s easy to get caught up in negative thinking.
I’m reminded of a Shark Tank episode from a few weeks ago where the inventor of the Rapid Ramen Cooker (LOVE that product name) ended by saying, “itâ€™s about proximity.” You have to surround yourself with positive people. He said, if you are surrounded by 4 broke people, you will become the 5th. Thatâ€™s powerful. Keep that in mind. Get yourself into a group that is positive and that you gain wonderful, encouraging messages from.
In order to succeed you must believe you can be successful. Truly, believe you are worthy of the success you dream of. If you dream small, your reality will be small. If you need a job and think you are only capable of making XX dollars, then you will only earn XX dollars â€“ or less! You must open your mind wider and believe you can make XXX dollars! Or XXXX! Others do, why not you? You are worthy, you are smart, you deserve it too. Believe it and it will come to you.
If you do not believe in yourself, others wonâ€™t either.
