The Magic of Surrounding Yourself with Motivated Individuals

August 08, 20235 min read

Life is an incredible journey filled with lessons and growth. It is a series of steps where every decision, every action, and every person can shape you. But have you ever wondered how the company you keep impacts your personal development?

Warren Buffet once said, "Surround yourself with people who push you to do better and be better. No drama or negativity. Just higher goals and higher motivation. Good times and positive energy. No jealousy or hate. Just bringing out the absolute best in each other."

Sounds appealing, right? But how do we translate this advice into action? How can we build an uplifting circle of motivated individuals who can help us unleash our full potential?

Positive influence can be a catalyst for personal and professional development. Consider a moment in your life where someone's optimism, determination, or compassion sparked a change within you. How did that encounter shape your perspective? How did it push you to grow?

Being surrounded by like-minded people inspires growth by introducing new ways of thinking, cultivating resilience, and fostering a growth mindset. When you spend time with other motivated individuals, their drive and determination become infectious. You start to adopt their go-getter mentality, and their aspirations become a catalyst for your growth. There is a beautiful synergy between you and them.


Building an Uplifting Circle:

  • Surround Yourself with Motivated Individuals

Creating your own support tribe isn't a task you can accomplish overnight. It requires time, patience, and a bit of networking finesse. Here are some actionable steps to guide you on this journey.

  • Identify Your Tribe: Look for people who align with your values, inspire you, and challenge you to be better. They might be professionals in your field, mentors, friends, or even family members.

  • Cultivate Positive Relationships: Building a meaningful relationship is not a one-way street. It requires mutual respect, understanding, and support. Encourage others, celebrate their victories, and offer help when needed.

  • Set Boundaries: Positive relationships are based on mutual respect. Ensure your circle respects your boundaries and vice versa.

  • Engage in Constructive Feedback: A true friend will be honest, even if the truth is hard to hear. Accept feedback gracefully, and don't shy away from giving it.

  • Practice Reciprocity: Be there for others just as they are there for you. Offer support, encouragement, and knowledge whenever you can.

  • Easy-Way Out: Join our Exponential Growth Mastermind and meet your perfect tribe there. Let us select the right people for you and save you all the hassle. By attending the same personal growth event, you have the guarantee that the people you meet there think like you - they are ambitious, heart-led and bold enough to invest in themselves. Just like you.

However you may still doubt and ask yourself: Why go through all this effort to build such a circle? The answer lies in the magic of a motivated circle. The value of surrounding yourself with ambitious individuals is immeasurable. They keep you grounded, push you to stretch your limits, and are your cheering squad when you reach your goals. They contribute to your personal development and professional growth in a myriad of ways. They also become your friends for life and can help you with a personal challenge, going through a conflict with your spouse, a divorce or challenges with your children. 


For instance, consider the world-renowned motivational speaker Tony Robbins. He believes that success leaves clues. By surrounding himself with successful, driven people, Robbins was able to emulate their strategies and habits, leading to his monumental success.

As I am part of his prestigious Platinum Partnership, I hear many stories about how he creates his success directly from him…he often tells the story of hanging out with billionaires (that’s with a ‘B’) at the early stages of his career when he was making barely ~1M $ and felt super overwhelmed by their presence, yet he knew the value of being in their circle and the value of proximity. He often says “Proximity is power”. This is also why I continue to invest in my growth and I offer exceptional opportunities to my clients to connect through a mastermind or the LIVE coaching events.

The motivated circle acts as your safety net during challenging times and your springboard towards new opportunities. So remember, every person in your life plays a part in shaping who you are and who you will become.

Building an uplifting tribe of motivated individuals is a strategic decision for personal growth. It’s about choosing to invest in relationships that encourage you to become the best version of yourself. It's a challenging task but immensely rewarding.

Remember the words of motivational speaker Jim Rohn, "You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with." Who are those five people for you? Are they helping you grow, or are they holding you back? The choice is yours to make. Surround yourself with motivated individuals, and witness the transformative magic unfold. Investing in a great coach can take care of one name of your TOP 5 list!
