Surround Yourself With Strong People

Wednesday, 8 April 2009 at 2:00 am Pacific USA Time.

I blogged about this some weeks ago, and it's just dropped into my mailbox again as a reminder. So I'm reminding you. :)

I get the "thought of the day" email from You may or may not believe in that stuff or "The Secret," but I think some good ideas come out of it. Power of positive thinking!

Here is a thought of the day I got recently, which reminded me of that blog post:

bunch of weak people, even in numbers, aren't strong. Get a whole bunch of
confused people together and see how much clarity comes out of it. In other
words, you just can't add one more confused person to the pot, and expect to
get any more clarity… One—standing outside of the confused group—who is clear,
is more powerful than a million who are confused.

Excerpted from the
workshop in Albuquerque, NM on Wednesday, September 1st, 2004

I think that says plenty, but just to give you my take on it… a group of businesses coming together to try to grow their business are probably thinking about business not being that great. Someone whose business is really on fire probably doesn't have time for that meeting, and may even think it's a room full of not-like-minded people.

There is wanting something and there is doing and being something. Do it and be it! Doing it and being it would be the fastest ways to have what you want. :)

    But just think of how much more powerful we will be, collectively, if a few of the strong help to lead the weak and teach them about strength.
    Too many of the strong, with businesses “on fire” don’t take the time to do the mentoring that would make the world a better place. No single business exists in a vacuum. Where will we find the strong people we need to hire, and the strong companies to partner with, if no one is there to teach the weak how to be better?
    That’s my problem with “The Secret” and other guru-like advisors who will tell us to “surround ourselves only with people who will lift us up”. It’s a taker’s philosophy that leaves no room for giving.
