TGIM | The Winning Circle | Part 2 with Eric Thomas

WHAT UP! WHAT UP! It’s your boy ET! Look, I told you last week that, the goals you achieve in life are strongly correlated to the types of relationships you maintain. You are the sum total of the five individuals you spend the most time with. If I spend just a few minutes with your circle of friends, I can tell you where your life is headed. FIND YOUR WINNING TEAM!!! I had to bring this topic back for a second week.

This single principle has changed my life and my career significantly. I constantly surround myself with individuals who want greatness. Individuals who are better than I am. So many people surround themselves with individuals who either, cater to their ego, or slowly tear them down. Which one are you? Think about your main group of friends for a moment. Which category do they fall into? Maybe it’s a mixed group, and you find that you and one or two other friends are being held back by the others. Either way, you need to separate yourself from individuals who hinder your progress. I wouldn’t be where I am, if I’d been egotistical or dishonest about my strengths and weaknesses. What If I’d closed myself off to those individuals who helped me along the way. Key members of my team, CJ and Karl, would not be in my life. My speaking career would not be at the level it’s at today, my company would not exist. Look at all you can achieve, if you’d just open yourself up to building a winning team. It’s not easy, but if it was, everybody would do it. Thanks for watching and make the rest of your life, the best of your life!
