Did you know that most people earn the average of their 5 best friends’ salaries?
It’s a little scary, right?
Why? Because knowingly or not, we become like the people we surround ourselves with.
Which means, when you’re spending a lot of time with someone, your habits and behaviours are going to brush off on each other.
If your friends aren’t wealthy, you’re probably not either.
That’s nothing against your friends, it’s just a simple fact.
The thing is, I think a lot of people don’t realize that money-making is as much in the mind as, say, playing a sport or an instrument to a top level.
See, if we want to get good at almost anything in life, we need to get coaching and guidance from people who are ‘experts’ in that area – and these people play a vital role in how successful we become in that field.
For instance, more often than not top basketball coaches were (or are) great players themselves.
So why is it then, that so many people take financial advice from friends or family members who are not even well-off themselves?
Believe me, I get it.
We’ve been raised to trust our parents and to believe that they know what’s best for us.
And when it comes to becoming wealthy and successful, if your parents are well-off business moguls, then by all means you should listen to whatever advice they have.
But on the other hand, if your parents, your Uncle Arthur, or your friend Sally are still struggling to pay off their own mortgage, then are they really the best people to be listening to?
I mean, you wouldn’t expect to learn how to surf from someone who can barely even stay on a body board, right?
So please, don’t get me wrong… your friends are certainly an important part of your life.
But in order to become wealthy and successful, you need to start following the advice of people who are living the kinds of abundant, financially-free lives you want!
People like Steve G Jones, Tony Robbins, and Dr Joe Vitale are my own personal role-models, and have guided me a lot in my quest for success.
At the end of the day, it comes down to this simple fact:
In order to get rich and successful, you need to get advice from rich people!
