The Importance of Having the Right People Around You & My Gratitude!

Like my bro Carl Albrecht - being surrounded by the right people is great.  Carl is kind, motivational and speaking to him is a pleasure. I always enjoy a phone call from him!

Like many of you reading this blog (and I am sure many worse than me), I bet you can all relate to difficult times in your life. Be it you get sick, lose someone important to you, run out of money and all that type of sad stuff the true reality is that “Bad Things” happen to good people.

Talking in my life, some of these “Bad” things I deserve and some of them I know I don’t deserve at all. Be it they are fair, unfair or anything in between – what life has taught me is the importance of having “The Right People” around you.

I have heard this cliche for years and to be strangely honest with you, I think I have only understood the real meaning of this over the past 18 months.

I used to be surrounded by tons of bad people and now I am surrounded by nothing but GREAT people and it’s very liberating.

Talking more to challenges / pain, the reality is that when you have great people around you – they buffer you / help you during difficult times. Over the past few months I have had great people message me / call me to say hello and make sure I am okay. WOW! I am very humbled and thank you.

Talking more opportunities / pleasure, the reality is that great people try and proactively help you out. This has included getting great referrals, meeting amazing people who have become close friends and just having a good time. WOW! Humbled again I am.

What I have learned over time is that it’s very important to limit exposure / minimize people who are not good for you. In a business sense it can be people who eat up all your time, don’t pay your bills or just put you down when it suits them.

Awesome people are the direct opposite. They make you feel great, help you make more money, energize you and also get you focused and moving completely in the right direction and make you just feel good about life in general.

The reality is that my life is a reflection of who is in it now – pure and simple.

My advice & lesson? Listen to your mother. Surround yourself with the right people and powerful things happen.  Mummy is always right x x

Love your work, thank you for the read and keep up the great work Awesome Friends!
