Not only do I love this picture, but I love the quote that the writer made. Some people believe that in order to get to your full potential, you need to associate with others who are in the position you want or trying to achieve those goals. I have to say that I agree. The people we speak to regularly play a major role in our lives.
With saying that, how many are associated with others who want to achieve goals like themselves? This doesn’t have to only involve career goals, it can be relationship goals, financial goals, etc. I believe that if you want to become an entrepreneur, some of your contacts should be so as well. You can’t only associate with those who do Not have the dream of owning their own business because it can be harder to achieve that dream without that extra push. Let’s say you want to get married or thinking about parenthood, yes, those are both journeys in life that are not the same for everyone, but having a mentor who is married or a parent can help give insight on things to expect. Let’s face it, sometimes we can’t get that from family because of the different dynamics and biases.
There are many other benefits that I’m sure I missed. Does anyone else associate or have a mentor with others that are like-minded? What other benefits do you believe take place?
