Seven Success Killers | How to Ensure You WON'T Succeed!
#7 of the Seven Success Killers presented by Aaron Marino of alpha m. deserves it's own discussion. Birds of a feather flock together. You can know a man by the company he keeps. If you lie down with dogs, you'll wake up with fleas. What you friends say about you than you realize or care to realize.

When you were growing up, was there a kid or two with which your parents wouldn't let you hang out? Your parents realized the importance of not hanging out with 'degenerates'. Alpha shares a story about Anne in 6th grade who was older and a 'bad girl'. Alpha's mother put the kibosh on the relationship, because he was going no-where fast with that girl.

Our parents protected us from associating with bad people. As we age, they aren't there to be the barometer of character for the people who we bring into our social circle. This social circle has a drastic impact on you and your success. Think of it as your 'friendship osmosis'. We surround ourselves with friends, and we absorb their motivation and drive.

Positive relationships encourage positive behavior. If you want to be successful, surround yourself with successful people because they'll encourage you. Do your friends encourage you to accomplish your goals? But before you analyze your current circle of friends, look at yourself in the mirror. Is your behavior attracting the wrong people? Change yourself before changing those around you. Changing your friends as a self improvement technique only works if you are willing to change yourself.

We are highly influenced by those around us. Take inventory of those who you have in your corner. You don't have to drastically cut out friends, but a gradual weaning is fine. If you surround yourself with losers that aren't going any place, you aren't going any place either. Surround yourself with positive and motivated people. This is the difference between succeeding and staying right where you are.
