We can learn so much from having relationships with remarkable people. Consider the quote below:
“You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.” – Jim Rohn
Surrounding yourself with people who lift you up, inspire you and challenge you to be better is one of the most motivating and rewarding things in the world.
Settling for less than inspiring relationships only hinders your growth and your potential. Who wants that drag in their lives?
Have you ever played a sport and noticed that you performed better when you practiced and competed against players who were equal or better than you?
Or have you gone on a trip with an incredible group of people who lifted you up and shared wonderful times together, in comparison to a trip where you had a lackluster group and the experience wasn’t nearly as uplifting or memorable? These are only two of many examples of this idea.
“You are a product of your environment. So choose the environment that will best develop you toward your objective. Analyze your life in terms of its environment. Are the things around you helping you toward success – or are they holding you back?”
– W. Clement Stone
If you want to be a better person and live a more fulfilling and purposeful life, you must put yourself in a productive and inspiring environment. No matter how much you don’t want to admit it, people and your surroundings rub off on you no matter how strong your mental boundaries are.
Once you surround yourself with great people, you will have already begun to realize it’s power. You will notice that you have become a better person and continue to strive to improve. You will notice that you are living a happier and more fulfilling life.
On the other hand, at times you may notice that it is more challenging (as long term growth is never easy); however, the rewards are incredible. Life’s highs are higher. You are more alive and more expressive with your emotions. You are more motivated and energized on a daily basis. You think more positively and are more motivated to go after your desires and accomplish your goals.
How to attract extraordinary people into your life:
It first begins with your mind:
Let me ask you, what type of man do you want to be?
Do you want to be rich? Have fancy cars? Attract gorgeous women? Or do you want to be fulfilled and live with purpose and passion? Do you want to be healthy and fit? Do you want to be a world leader? Or do you mainly want a supportive wife and wonderful kids?
It is important to answer questions like this so you can get more clear on what you TRULY want. Once you narrow this down over time, you can begin to search for other people with similar goals, drives, principles, morals, beliefs, etc that support your own.
The truth is, once you get crystal clear with who you are and where you are heading, you will attract similar people into your life like magnets.
In order to get more clear, you must start taking action. You must start pursuing your goals and dreams on a daily basis. Live and breath it. Visualize it. EMBODY it, and it will eventually come true. The mind is a very powerful tool.
The bigger your goals are and the more action you take to achieve them, the more similarly driven and supportive people will come into your life.
**Rahul Bhambhani explains in this interview how everything that happens to you (even external things) is your responsibility. Anything that happens to you can be traced back to an action or thought that YOU manifested in the past.
You are the creator of your reality. You attract people and things into your life. You are the master and the commander of your life. Denying this truth will hold you back in all areas of your life and will project things onto other people instead of yourself.
“I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.” – William Ernest Henley
So how can you meet cool people?
So many people have asked me how to make new friends (the type of friends they are actually excited to spend time with) and expand their social circle in their city.
Here are some great ways:
1. Join Meetup groups and actually go to the events
2. Partake in Groupon events & activities
3. Join dance classes (search on google for local salsa, country western, tango, ballroom, or swing classes)
4. Go to local events & activities (concerts, festivals, charities, fund raisers, volunteer work, museums, etc)
5. Join sports teams (search on google and in your local newspaper for local sports organizations. It’s usually not very hard to find football, softball, volleyball, ultimate frisbee, soccer and kickball teams)
6. Yoga classes
7. Races and competitions (i.e. running, biking, triathlons, Tough Mudder, etc)
8. Create your own social events and invite friends & acquaintances (i.e. karaoke night, movie night, house party, sports at the park, etc)
The Power of Online Networking:
Throughout the past year I have built up a remarkable social circle than I never even imagined was possible by using the internet. As you may know I have interviewed 26 extraordinary people in the past 7 months on my podcast. Each one of the interviews has helped me make a memorable connection with each guest.
In addition, through natural flow I got connected with people in their social circles. For example, I got connected with Mike Hrostoski and Nick Sparks through Max Nachamkin, Marc Coppola and Phil Drolet (my personal coach) through Jordan Lejuwaan, Dan Adams through Phil Drolet, Rahul Bhambhani and Heather Romiti through Mike Hrostoski, Samuel Hershberger through Nick Sparks, Christopher Wilutsz through Elliott Hulse, and… well I think you get the point.
Making these sorts of connections has changed my life, DRASTICALLY. I have learned so much from each of the individuals and for these gifts I am eternally grateful. I wouldn’t be the man that I am today without all of these people touching my life and inspiring me one way or another.
Here are a few of the countless things I’ve learned:
*I learned from Mike Hrostoski to be impeccable with my word and do things for the sake of all beings rather than myself.
*I learned from Max Nachamkin to create more or as much as I learn in order to maintain consistent happiness.
*I learned from Phil Drolet to embody the man I want to become by simply believing it and portraying it through my expression and daily actions.
*I learned from Rahul Bhambhani to take responsibility for my reality and everything that happens to me
*I learned from Dan Adams to trust my gut and explore where my emotions are coming from in order to understand myself more clearly
I couldn’t be happier and more excited about the future possibilities and the things I can create with these remarkable people in the future.
