The people that you surround yourself with matters an incredible deal. You might not realise it but your personal outlook and mindset is a reflection of that inner circle. If you want a great mindset and outlook in life, then make sure you surround yourself accordingly. Bad breeds bad. Good breeds good. And great breeds great. This does not mean that you sever relationships. It just calls for spending much lesser time with those that do not build you up. They don’t necessarily have to be at a level that you aspire to, although that helps. More importantly, they need to be supporting and encouraging, or even inspiring you.
