Hi, I’m Cynthia, Founder of the Brave Zone. If you’re a self employed professional growing your business, it’s important to surround yourself with a supportive network of people who feeds positive useful energy that keeps you strong. In this video, I want to share with you the three things you need to consider when choosing the right environment to fuel your growth.
If you want customised insight about your business, you can get that free of charge by booking a Brave Discovery Call.
Here are my tips on choosing the right environment for growth:
- Surround yourself with people who have achieved more than you. It’s sometimes more flattering to be the smartest person in the group, but it won’t help you grow. Get involved with groups where you are the smallest fish in that big pond. You will feel a positive pressure to grow, and you’ll be surrounded by potential mentors that can give you insight.
- Be with people who love to learn and develop themselves. Trust me, this is not a natural trait. Many people are not used to self development or think it’s a weird thing. If you hang out with people like that, then your growth is stunted. They may be know it alls, or they may just believe that they cannot change their status quo. Be with people who value personal growth and put it as a priority.
- Be with positive minded people. Stay away from people who love to complain, gossip, compare. They are in my opinion, the energy suckers. It’s exhausting listening to them and being around them. And if you allow them to take up too much of your time, you may end up like them too. So choose more optimistic, grateful and positive people who choose to see what’s possible, and focus on what they can control.
Those are my top tips. Book a Discovery Call if you want fresh perspectives for your business.
