How much do you think you’re influenced by all the different people in your life? Here’s a powerful analogy from Dean Holland which illustrates how impactful it can be to surround yourself with positive people who inspire you, and people who motivate you in your life, and as an entrepreneur in your business…
“Good morning my friend! I hope you’re well. It is of course Monday, and I am of course Dean Holland. And we’re on the way to Internet Profits HQ right now.
I hope you had a good weekend. It is of course Monday, and I’ve got a bit of an adventurous week coming up. I’m actually kind of a witness to a wedding tomorrow, where I have to sign.
Robyn, my fiancé, it’s her brother. But they’re kind of doing the legal marriage here in this country, and then on Wednesday we’re actually flying out to Greece for their actual wedding. They have to do the legal side here for whatever reason. But anyway, so we’re actually flying out to one of the Greek islands on Wednesday.
Now, Heads Up!
A bit of a lesson in planning and preparation… I have been told this small Greek island we’re going to does not have very good internet, and it doesn’t have internet in the rooms – which is crazy in this day and age, right?
So I’m having to, just in case, I’m preparing some Drive episodes this week ahead of time for you, so that you can still hear from me. Planning, preparation, execution to keeping cranking out this greatness, haha!
Now I’ve got something that I want to share today. Something came into my mind over the weekend. You see, my fiancé Robyn actually grew up near Wimbledon in London, England. And because of that, she has still has a bit of an accent – what we would call like a cockney accent, like a London accent.
She’s not lived there for many, many years, but she still sometimes has that accent. And I want to draw on something from that thought, for all of us… The people that you surround yourself with can actually impact you for the rest of your life, in multiple different ways.
Surround Yourself With Positive People
So I want you to think about this in terms of starting and growing your business. You might think to yourself, “Well, y’know, it doesn’t matter too much who I hang out with, and what information I take in, and what I listen to – what beliefs I listen to, and what opinions I listen to.”
But the reality is, if somebody can be around certain people early on in life that speak a specific way, that have a specific accent because of where they live. And you pick up that accent, and it sticks with you for the rest of your life.
Then do you see how that lesson alone, tells us that who we hang out with – who we spend our time with, the opinions we listen to, the beliefs we take in around us – can absolutely impact the way we think and act in our lives. Does that make sense?
So if you think about it, like, if you had a child and you were born in a particular… Let’s say me right, I live in England right now. If I were to move to, let’s just say, America. And we had a child, and that child was born and raised in America for the first 10 years of its life. Even though I don’t speak with an American accent, do you think my child would?
Absolutely! Why? Because they’re being raised and they’re surrounding themselves with people that do. And I want to use that analogy, that comparison, for you to realize that the people you associate with, the people you hang out with, the people you listen to, the information you take in – can absolutely impact the way you think, act, and go about your life.
Find People Who Inspire You, People Who Motivate You
And when you want to have an online business, it is imperative that you listen to the right advice, you hang out with the right kind of people that can help you, support you, inspire you. Surround yourself with positive people who motivate you, people who inspire you. Otherwise you’re gonna find it even harder than it already is to build a business.
So anyway, that’s my little philosophy, or lesson, or analogy of the day. The people that you surround yourself with can impact how you think and act in your life.
With that said, don’t miss out on any of the good stuff that we’ve got coming out. And of course, I will be taking footage while I’m away. So I look forward to sharing that with you when I get back. And if I’m able to do so when I’m there, I will do of course.
Thank you so much for joining us here on The Drive. Until next time with “Three Daily Routines That Increase Productivity, Focus And Energy“, this is Dean Holland signing out. Take care.
