Surround Yourself With People You Want to be Like

By July 17, 20116 Comments

Do you know what you want to do? What lifestyle you want to have? What you want to be like?

I spent the last couple of days in Vegas for a fitness business mastermind with some of the top people in the industry.It was an incredible experience and definitely inspiring. I felt blessed to be there. Below is a picture of the two guys who are my good friends and mentors. I can’t thank them enough for the help, support and guidance and more than anything believing in me from the start.

I feel like my brain is on overload with so much valuable information but I want to share a few things I took away that were HUGE yet simple that apply to anyone not just in the fitness business:

-Failures are not defeat…they are test results that remind you what not to do next time.
-Define in your life and business what success looks like.
-Stop caring what others think and do what YOU want and what will move YOU forward in life.
-Stop messing around and wasting time and just FOCUS.
-Don’t wait for everything to be perfect to start something, it will NEVER happen.
-Mindset is key. With the right mindset, anything is possible.

So go do this right now…
1. Stop wasting time on Facebook and flipping through your friends pictures and start working on things that will move you forward in life.

2. Don’t wait for the right time to start that project or business idea, start it now and test and tweak along the way.

3. Look around your circle of influence and ask yourself if that’s what you want to be like. Are they happy for your success? If not, let them go. Sounds brutal but that’s life. “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” Where you end up in life is a refection of those 5 close relationships.

4. Be cool, don’t be a jerk. You’re no better than anyone else, so don’t act like it.

5. Set goals..reach them, reward yourself and do it again. Without a goal you have nothing to aim at and you end up with no direction.

    Thanks so much for these tips. I spend most of my life trying to please ppl and doing things because I don’t want them to think bad about me. Some times I stop or refrain myself from doing things because I am afraid of what they’ll say or think, but you are right, we oughta do things for our good and because they feel GOOD to us.

    I think that surrounding oneself with people we want to be like is also a big plus… THANKS, always so inspiring and helpful 🙂

  • Taylor- You’re welcome, we all need that reminder. I definitely got it this weekend.

    Lupe- Lupe if you try and please everyone around you you’ll never be happy. Just be you, be true to yourself, stand up for what you believe in and don’t worry about what others think about you it’s not your problem. Focus on what makes you happy and help others around you the rest doesn’t matter.
