This Is Holding You Back From Success

When I was starting my entrepreneurial career, I used to spend so much time with all the wrong people.

Taking my laptop to parties trying to get my work done…

Hanging around people that didn’t get it…

It was only when I started hanging out with wealthier people that my life changed forever.

And here’s how that affects you and your business.

Chances are you’ve been building in a silo for the longest time.

And you’ve always tried to push yourself to the next level.

But you felt stuck.

Most founders think that failure is a willpower problem.

But I’m telling you, it’s nothing to do with willpower.

It’s your environment.

Imagine standing in a freezer, trying to get warm.

No matter how much positive attitude you have…

It’s NOT going to work.

But if you step into a sauna, you’ll warm up without ANY effort.

The same applies to your environment and your goals.

To play a bigger game, you need to change your environment to heat your internal thermostat to another level.

In this video, I’m going to unpack three specific strategies that are going to help you fix your environment and crush your goals even faster.

You’ll learn:

  1. The power of association: why the people you spend time with can make or break your success
  2. Why you need to do a “friend inventory” right now (and how to do it)
  3. The “amplification effect”: how to boost your beliefs and level up your mindset
  4. How being the “small guy” in the room can skyrocket your growth
  5. Finding a better room: why seeking out new environments is THE key to massive growth

If you’re serious about achieving your goals, don’t waste 5 years like I did.

Make it a practice to spend time with the right people who give you energy, have the right beliefs, and provide an environment for growth.

Remember: your net worth is your network.

So watch the video right now and learn how to take control of your environment.

Looking forward to hearing your biggest takeaways.

P.S. In this video, I mention a few books that will help you level up your environment.

But if you want to get my top business books of all time, after reading over 1500 books I’ve distilled them down initially for my young cousin who was starting a business and wanted to know which book he should start with.
