Part 7 – Community
So far in the 7 steps to achieving success we have looked at goal setting, meditation, beliefs, stoppers, reflection, and language. The final step in this is probably one of the most crucial and can be the final stumbling block for people and that is community, the people you surround yourself with.
I am sure you have heard saying like “you are a product of your surroundings”, “you become what you hang around with” and ” you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with”. In order to create the success you desire you need to ensure you are surrounding yourself with the people who are going to enable you, not disable you. This can be tough because some of the people who end up working against you are your own family. I am not saying you need to cut these people out of your life completely, but simply limit the time and influence they have on your life.
Once you have looked at the previous steps you will have a pretty good idea as to where you are wanting to head and what you are wanting to achieve. You then need to find people who are on a similar path or have already traveled the path. These are the people that you need to spend more of your time with. When you are in the process of doing this be sure that you don’t full into the trap of explaining or justifying your actions. It is your dream, your goals, your life and no one will understand it like you do and you can’t expect them to. I hope these steps help you in achieving all that you desire for your life.
