It’s all about the people

In any situation, it’s the people that matter.

At work, if you surround yourself with the best and brightest, you’ll learn from them and continue to get better. The best team always find the way to win.

If you surround yourself with high-caliber friends and family (though you can’t choose your family), you’ll grow as a person and have a great personal and social life.

Motivational speaker Jim Rohn said that “you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”

I am amazed at the people I work with. I’ve been lucky to be surrounded by really smart, driven, and well-rounded co-workers.

And I love my friends and family, and all of them are just as smart, driven, and well-rounded as my co-workers.

I’m very appreciative of everyone I interact with and owe a lot to all of them.

If you feel that you’re not getting enough out of your career or personal life, look around at the people you spend the most time with to see if a change is needed.

Because it really is all about the people.

What do you think about the people that surround you, and how do they affect you?
