THE THREE ESSENTIAL PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE AT ALL TIMES

I received this article from one of my former players, Randy Livingston.  It is a concept that try to pound into the hearts and minds of our players -- to be the best you can be, you must constantly surround yourself with people that can and will lift you to another level.

This article was written by  for www.Addicted2Success.com.  This is just a small excerpt from the article.  The entire article is outstanding and will be processed into a passout for our team this summer.  Read the entire article here.

Enjoy this excerpt:

A mentor once told me that no matter how many close people you have in your network, if you want to be truly great, you must have three essential people in your life at all times
  1. A person who is older and more successful than you to learn from
  2. A person who is equal to you to exchange ideas with
  3. A person below you to coach and keep you energized
A great figure of history who embodied this principle was Aristotle. Aristotle was one of the greatest minds to ever grace this beautiful Earth, but this was only so because he was constantly challenging himself and working to refine his talents. He exchanged ideas with other Greek philosophers in the “Academy,” learned from his mentor Plato, and taught a young boy named Alexander…who would later become “Alexander the Great.”

Every great person was, is, or will be successful because of the company he or she keeps. They will make an impact because of a successful network of driven peers who provide both inspiration and healthy competition.

If you want to be remarkable, you must constantly challenge yourself and surround yourself with remarkable people. So think about what your goals are, and take a look around you. Do you need to write a “make or break” list?
 
Do you have the kind of people who are going to lead you to live the life of your dreams?
Don’t join an easy crowd. Go where the expectations and the demands to perform and achieve are high.” – Jim Rohn

Strive to be better. Strive to be more. Strive to be amazing.
