6. Those who help you tap your full potential and bring out the best in you
Surround yourself with people who understand you, can identify with your dreams and aspirations and will help you further your goals. They may be your family members, friends, colleagues or associates. Anyone you can resonate with and feel comfortable with talking your heart out, discussing your positives and negatives, assets and limitations, strengths and weaknesses. They will help you get in touch with your real self and make you feel confident and empowered.
7. Those who can provide a genuine feedback
It is human nature to hear good things about ourselves. Most people gravitate towards those who appreciate them and talk positive about them. But it is not wise to have 'yes people' around you all the time. To have a balanced view about yourself and be aware of your blind spots, it is important that you surround yourself with people who can provide authentic feedback and who don't mince words while giving their honest opinion about you. They will help you better yourself, rectify your mistakes, work on your weak spots and help you grow.
8. Those who can help you keep happy, upbeat and positive
En route the journey of success, you will experience difficulties, face challenges, problems and hardships that can make you feel low. It is important to have a support group and be surrounded by people who can keep your spirits up when the chips are down and boost your morale when things seem dark and nebulous. These cheerleaders will be there for you when you need them the most and help you tide over down times.
9. The 'forward moving' people
Surround yourself with people who are forever marching ahead. They are not satisfied with one time success. For them, success is an ongoing journey. They set themselves goals, work hard to accomplish them, get what they want but don't stop at that. They are not the ones to rest on their laurels. These people are moving ever onwards. When one set of goals is achieved, they raise the bar higher and give themselves a new set of goals. Such people will inspire you and encourage you to keep doing new things and set new goals for yourself.
You cannot change the people around you but you definitely have the power to choose people whom you wish to be close to you and influence you in a meaningful way. Surround yourself with the ambitious and the most productive people if you want to grow. This choice will go a long way in helping you keep yourself in a positive frame of mind, work hard to achieve your goals, reach where you aspire to be and live a happy and successful life.
