Have you ever heard the saying, "tell me who you hang out with and I'll tell you who you are"? Tell me what your friends are doing and where they're going and that reflects on what you're doing and where you're going as an individual. Regardless if you're doing your own thing, others see who you are through the people you spend the most time with.
Do you want to be a successful business owner? Spend time with business owners. Do you want to be a writer? Spend time with writers. Do you want to graduate from college? Spend time with people that have the same or a similar goal. It's a way of "faking it until you make it". Gain experience from other people in the field you want to get into. Play the part, talk the talk, fake it until you become it.
These are some of my top people, each one of them motivates me to
be a better person and to keep growing.
