The road to success is rough, the journey tough and the time limited. Clichéd but that's a fact. Whether you are trying to become an accomplished sportsperson, musician, writer, artist, actor, entrepreneur or simply a better person, the truth is- achieving any goal is difficult. You will experience ups and downs, highs and lows. In such challenging times, it is always useful to be surrounded by people who can lend you a helping hand, contribute in some positive way and add value to your life.

We are the product of our surroundings and the people we interact with on a daily basis. Subconsciously, we think and act in a similar way to the people we most spend our time with. Thus, it is important to be selective and choose people you wish to be surrounded by.

Here are 9 types of people who can exert a positive influence on you and help in propelling you forward on the path of success.

1. Ambitious and passionate people

Surround yourself with people who have goals, want to accomplish something in life, reach somewhere and be something. No matter which area or field they are trying to excel in, the common denominator is that they have clarity about life and know exactly what their goals are. These people always keep their big picture in mind. They work according to their vision, are focused on their goals and are always planning in terms of moving ahead on their chosen path.

2. The doers

This world is full of people who make brilliant plans. But it is the doers, those who put their plans into action, who succeed in accomplishing goals and translate their hard work into success. The doers give themselves goals and set deadlines to achieve those goals. Surround yourself with such people. They will inspire you to overcome procrastination, take action and move steadily towards your goals.

3. The problem solvers

No matter who you are or what you do, you will always encounter problems in one form or the other. Instead of cribbing about things not working out, problem solvers focus on finding out ways to fix the problems. Surround yourself with these people and they will help you figure out the way forward.

4. Those who are on a similar journey as you

Surround yourself with people you aspire to be what you too want to become and are out to reach similar goals as you. You can relate to such people, have meaningful conversations with them, discuss your problems, ask for advice and seek their help when you feel stuck.

5. Those who can inspire you and be your role model

Surround yourself people you admire, look up to, want to emulate and walk in their footsteps. They are the awesome people you always dream of becoming. These people can impact you tremendously, help you get into the winner's mindset, infuse self-belief and confidence in you that you too can succeed and accomplish your goals.
