Do Your Friends Hold You Back From Achieving Your Potential? Real Talk Saturdays Ep1
It is currently 20 past 7:00 PM on a Saturday night and I want to talk about friendships and masterminds. I believe that this is a subject that's hard to talk about. Why? Because friends are friends. BUT, there could be a potential that your friends are holding you back.
It's Saturday night and my group of friends are coming over here at the warehouse and we are going to have a night together.
NOPE. Not what you're thinking. They're not coming around for a beer. We're going to listen to music of course, not to party all night but to keep us motivated.
We're gonna have a night together in front of our laptops. We're gonna talk about how we're doing, what's working, what lessons we've learned. And this is happening on a Saturday night.
How about you? Are you trying to get ahead? But you know, the reality is that when you try to get ahead, you got to put time in. If you're working full time right now and you're not putting the time or you don't have enough time during the weekdays, a Saturday night is very, very valuable for you to get ahead.

Set your standards high
If you've got group of friends that say "Let's go out! Let's party!" and you're like "Okay, let's go do that!", well it is another night, another time of wasting and not taking advantage. You're not trying to get ahead.
You gotta be very, very careful in choosing your friends. You gotta have high standards of your friends. You have to realize that you are what they call the average of your 5 closest people to you.
Think about it. If you have group of friends that go to the gym every single day, chances are you're gonna go to the gym. If you have group of friends that are all business owners and they're going out on holidays, chances are it's gonna push you towards building a business.

You've got to take the advice. You've got to take the information. Then decide what it means to you. For me, what it meant was I need to surround myself with people that expect a lot from me. Of course, we have a good time. We celebrate. We go on mastermind retreats. We have a drink. We go for a nice meal. We have a good chat and a good relaxation time. But, there are times that we need to get our laptops out and talk about business. We think about the future. We're building each other up.
Think about your current situation. I'm not gonna tell you which is right or wrong and which of your friends or relatives are holding you back. All I'm saying is to surround yourself with people who push you and motivate you.
If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. And remember, you’ve got to take massive action. Cheers!
