3 ways to change your friends and your success. “Birds of a feather flock together.” “Your income is the average of the 5 people you hang around.” If you have been around long enough, chances are that you have heard one or both of these quotes.

Who you hang around is a definite influence on you and your success factor. Another great post is You are who you hang out with.This is true because many times your friends and family cannot understand your dreams or goals. They sit in the background and criticize your actions and try to talk you out of your dreams.

Many times your friends and family mean well. They don’t want to see you fail or waste your time.

In order to improve your success, you have to change this circle of friends. The lack of encouragement and the criticism will soon weigh on your success. If you are not strong you will give up at the first sign that your plan or goal is not being reached as fast as you thought it should be.

3 ways to change your friends and your success

We will examine three quick methods that you can use to “change” your family and friends. These methods will allow you to accomplish this without changing your physical location. You also will not have to stop associating with your family and friends completely.

First, you can join a group on Facebook that has members who share the same goals that you do. You can do that by searching for a group that has the same interest or goal that you do. By doing this, you can engage with the members and exchange ideas. You can also share experiences. The members will be more that ready to give you encouragement and to help you share your successes. They may also have advice for you based upon their own experiences. Overall, this will be a better experience then relying on the support from friends and family. That support in most instances will not be forthcoming.

Second, you can read literature and find other information that talks abut the experiences of people with goals similar to yours. You can take a couple of hours out of your day to dive into this information. This will help you to forget the grumblings of your associates when they ask you “are you still into that thing.”

You can find books to read by leaders in the industry that you are trying to find success in. The stories in these books will share similar experiences as you have. The stories will give you advice and encouragement.

You can research blogs that are written by people you have found success in your industry. Again, this blog will give you advice and encouragement, offer resources and advice that will advance your efforts. Similarly, there may be a website that does the same thing.

Finally, you can hire a coach to push you towards your goals. A coach will be able to make you accountable to accomplish your goals. You will receive encouragement when you are planning your next steps. There will be criticism if you fail to follow your plans. Most of all, you will find an individual that can motivate you in a positive manner.

There are plenty of success coaches available that have a good track record when it comes to motivating and assisting their clients to progress towards their dreams and goals. You just need to see who your budget can afford.

In conclusion, the three methods outlined allow you to change your environment, without physically changing your location.  You can follow one or all of these approaches. When you begin to spend time in a positive environment and with encouragement you will become immune to the negative feedback from people who do not understand what it is you want to accomplish. Furthermore, you will become less likely to discuss your goals and projects with family and friends because you will have another outlet. So implement these 3 ways to change your friends and your success. You will be glad you did.

5 success habits that can bring you success. My mentor always says that success leaves clues. Basically what this means is that you can observe or research the habits of successful people to determine the path to success. I read an article that said don’t copy the habits of a person that is successful but copy the habits that they used to get there. (Why you shouldn’t copy the habits of successful people).

Whether you agree that you should copy the habits of people who are currently a success or copy the things they did to become a success, we can all agree that there are some habits that if applied will make you successful. A blueprint exists to put you on the pathway to success.

I gave it some thought and research and came up with five habits that will certainly assist you in gaining the advantage as you go through life and strive for a better one.

The first habit is that you should always write down your goals. These should be long term goals and short term ones. (Five golden rules for successful goal setting). Always having goals will give you clarity and provide a target that you are aiming for. Also, having goals are helpful because it will give you a measure to gauge your success. If you do not hit your goals this is ok. You can always retry them until they are reached.

Which brings me to the second habit. Be persistent. (See my blog post Napoleon Hill and the power of persistence). Persistence is important for several reasons. First, persistence gets you to your goal. In order to reach a goal or accomplish a task you have to keep moving forward until it is reached. Second, persistence strengthens your mindset. If you are persistent, it means that you are making it a habit to reach your goals. It trains  your mind not to give up. You become strong willed and will go that extra mile to get what you want.

The third habit is research. Yes, do your research to find out how something works and why it works. This means that if you have an ultimate goal, you need to know what things you need to do to accomplish this goal. This is where the research comes into play. Find out who else has accomplished what you are trying to attain. How did they do it? Are they available for you to ask questions? Do they have a blog or a website? Be at the top of your game. This means that your research will make you aware of what you need to do and what resources are available.

The fourth habit is to create a schedule. A schedule will force you to make time to take action on your goals. When you make your schedule, put in details of what you want to get accomplished. Make sure that the tasks you list actually get you towards a certain goal. Also, make sure that when you sit down to do a task on your schedule, that you get rid of all distractions. I mean that when you work, turn off your phone, shut down all social media. Don’t check your email every fifteen minutes. When you are following your schedule, you want to make sure that the time you allot is filed with nothing but accomplishing the task.

Finally, always take action. This habit is the most important. many times people will know what they need to do, but will procrastinate by waiting for the perfect time to get it done. There will never be a perfect time. When reaching for a goal and success the time is now. Have a goal, make a plan and take action on it.

I hope that these simple suggested habits will help you to move that much closer to success. Subscribe to this blog by filling out the form on the right. We will continue to send you information that will assist you in creating your truly rich life. (See also Five Keys to Success in Life).
