Do any of these situations ring a bell?
– You want to take that first step toward making a change in your life, but you don’t know where to start.
– Every time you go to one of your friends or family to tell them your next big idea, they quickly come back with a million reasons why your idea won’t work.
– Every time you get yourself excited and motivated to tackle life head-on, someone always seems to be there to remind you just how hard life has always been and will always be.
If any of these sound familiar, it is time to Change Your Social Group. You need to change this pattern of events by changing who you choose to spend time with. I am not telling you to stop talking to family or friends who you have grown up with; I am telling you that it is time to build a network of like-minded associates and friends who can motivate and guide you when you have that next big idea, or when you are ready to build a life that you have always dreamed of. You must distance yourself from negativity and from those who bring that negativity to you. Surround yourself with successful, self-driven individuals of whom you can feed off.
When you finally decide to take action and build yourself a network of “go-getters,” you will soon find it a lot easier to get your ideas in motion. There are many ways to build a network of associates, both online and off. It is up to you to build the network and to Change Your Social Group!
