You need someone to talk to.
Someone who will listen — really listen to you and your ideas.
Someone willing to help you, vouch for you and push you higher.
It doesn’t have to be 100 people.
Find those few.
Find those few friends rooting for you to win (and vice-versa)
There are some people I know I wish I could talk to more, but they would want me to be more like them and less like me.
Good or bad, friends fade with the phases of life, but the type of people you surround yourself will always determine the kind of person you are.
Your goal — and mine certainly — is to surround yourself with incredible people pursuing their own thing(s). You could be really into web development and be friends with someone really into major league baseball. Or love photography and be friends with an entrepreneur. The glue to the relationship is the pursuit of greatness and mastery.
When you surround yourself with greatness, you to want to strive to be great. Build a community to push each other forward, working in camaraderie towards excellence.
The moment you start looking for your few, they will randomly pop up one day out of the woodwork.
And when you find those few (in due time),
Hold them close. Be the kind of friend that they need, because they need you too.
Stay BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
