The "I" to become an A-Player
I - Improve Your Circle
They say that you become like the 5 people you spend the most time with. Hence you need to be extra careful with the kind of company that you keep. We all have people around us who have influenced our choices in food, sports, education and other aspects of our lives. If we have a microscopic look at this, we will notice that every time we surround ourselves with cynical people who would leave no stone unturned right from blaming the economy, their own parents, their workplace, their neighborhood or the country for that matter, we actually start to believe them and start thinking on the same tangent as them.
In a similar way, we feel more optimistic when we surround ourselves with exuberant characters. Our decision-making standards soar as we associate with people who make wise decisions about their career choices, their relationships, their future plans, etc. The question arises, what do I do about the friends that I have already made? Well, you will need to peacefully detach yourself from them so as to move further in your game.
