They’re dragging you down and it’s time to cut the ties!

.

This might not go down too well, but I’m gonna talk about it anyway.
I’m gonna talk about the FACT, that there’re people around you, that’re holding you back,
one way or another.
It might not be intentional, but often it can be!

.

So as an ambitious business owner / entrepreneur, you’l know that it’s your job to keep
growing.
Grow your mindset.
Grow your comfort zone.
Grow your knowledge.
Grow some frickin’ hard skin too!

.

You HAVE to do what others aren’t willing to do and go where they aren’t willing to go.
And it’s often tough.
ESPECIALLY if we aren’t seeing the results we want yet.
And let’s face it, we’re NEVER SATISFIED.
It’s our job to not be SATISFIED!

.

So why then, are you STILL hanging with your old crew?
Why’re you listening to them moan about the state of the country,
or the price of beer / gin / whatever…?
Aren’t you bored A F listening to them bring up the same old stories of how they shouldn’t
have to X, or it’s not their fault they Y?

.

You KNOW deep down that it’s getting you down, the fact they haven’t changed.
You’ve grown but they haven’t.
They think you’re a bit crackers when you start bringing up the stuff you do and what you’ve
recently learned.
If ONLY they’d become more like YOU!!!

.

Alas, it’s not going to be.
You’re special and you’re driven.
And while MAYBE that didn’t used to be the case,
it certainly IS THE CASE NOW.

.

You KNOW that you shouldn’t be listening to their verbiage.
You KNOW that WHO YOU HANG AROUND WITH MATTERS.
And,

YOU’RE THE AVERAGE OF THE 5 PEOPLE YOU HANG AROUND WITH THE MOST.

Any variation of the saying will do.
But here you are, hanging with them and it’s obvious to you that,
YES, they ARE fun.
YES, they are good people.
But NO, they aren’t the same as you and NOOOOO, they DEFINITELY aren’t further along
than you.

.

They aren’t gonna help you on your journey.
You aren’t gonna grow because of THEM and THEIR influence.
They’re dragging you down and it’s time to cut the ties!

.

It’s a little bit sad.
But it’s still true.
And if you REALLY want what you SAY you want…
gotta be done.

.

It’s not that you’re “better” than anyone else.
It’s that you’re trying to become better than YOU were yesterday and that means you have
to hang with others that’re gonna elevate you.

.

Now the odd time it’ll be a family member or someone that you can’t cut out 100% for one
reason or another.
In that case, limit the time you spend with them.
Don’t talk about business / learning / growing – they won’t get it and will likely offer a
reason why you’re talking s***!

.

Sometimes it’s well meant.
Other times, it’s ’cause you’re making them feel  inadequate and so they want to bring you
back down.
They’re dragging you down and it’s time to cut the ties!

.

It’s time you spent time with those like YOU.
Those who’re going somewhere.
Those that GET you.
And if you can’t find anyone like you to hang with and bounce off, then go find them online.
