Proximity is Priceless!

Life by Design, Mindset, Uplevel • March 27, 2024

If you’re the smartest person in the room, it’s time to get yourself into some new rooms!🔥

One of the reasons I’ve been successful is because I am constantly surrounding myself with people who are ahead of me on the journey. People who have already accomplished the things I am working towards. People I can learn from; whether that be in person, podcasts, books and even on social media.

It all started when I moved to Los Angeles in 2015 to build the training organization for Quest Nutrition. I had the pleasure of sitting in the live audience for a number of Tom Bilyeu‘s Inside Quest (now Impact Theory) interviews. The one that changed everything for me though was Lisa Nichols. It was one of the most impactful moments of my life. It was the first time I had ever witnessed someone like me, with a similar story and mindset not just surviving, but thriving. Here she was living a life she loved and creating transformative impact in the lives of others!

I was a sponge that day, soaking up everything I could. One of the things that really made an impact was when she said “When there is zero distance between you and it, it’s yours!” She continues by explaining how the would go to her friend’s house and rub all their stuff. She said “Surround yourself with the things that stretch you”. That meant what she had was available to me! Until that day, I had never considered my dreams truly possible. (You can watch the interview here.)

So my question to you is…when’s the last time you put yourself in spaces that stretch you? Who are the people around you that make you want to stand on your tippy toes?

What you CAN’T do is continue to go about it alone and wonder why not me? No one’s going to come up to you on the street and say “hey, you’re a hard worker, want this amazing opportunity or want to come to this billionaire’s house next weekend?” It just doesn’t work that way.

Learn from others. Share your wisdom with others. We are more powerful and successful when we empower each other! Let’s rise up. Together!

Here’s to another week of living your life by design, not by default!
