June 5 – Daily Reflection
“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great ones make you feel that you, too, can become great.”
– Mark Twain, writer and satirist
Surrounding Yourself with the Right People
It’s easy to recognize a perfect candidate for your support team. Just look for someone who has a way of making everyone else around them better: someone who succeeds by developing other people and letting them in on the fun; someone who is genuinely happy when other people succeed. That’s the person you want on your side. The pages of history are heavy with tales of the misguided who were proven wrong while insisting something couldn’t be done. Why put up with that? Believe in your goals enough to know that you shouldn’t stomach people who don’t. It’s okay if you’re the only one who believes in your dream. But someone who truly believes in YOU should help you believe that if anyone can do it, you can.
