Think about the closest people in your life right now. You know, the ones you hang out with, who you talk about your past present and future with; who you turn to for advice.
Where are they going?
Is it where you want to be in the future?
If yes, then awesome!
If not... well, then why are you hanging out with them?
It's not that there's anything wrong with these people... but if they're not going into your future, you're going to end up in theirs.
It's really easy to see why hanging out with the 'appropriate' group makes a difference. 1) Because they're actively looking for opportunities, they will find more opportunities, 2) Each connection they have in their network, helps all others in that network (meaning, you) and 3) When the time comes to act, they will take the action, as opposed to people who believe they can't do it.
So take the time to seriously see where your 'support group' is and where they're going. If they don't get your dream, get going!
Keep that light on!
