Who you associate with will determine the quality of your life. If you are starting out in your career or changing jobs, choose your boss with care. You want to work for someone who has much to teach you, who is positive, upbeat and enthusiastic. You want to avoid a boss who appears negative, critical, sarcastic or egotistical. You will not thrive in such an environment.
Outside your job, you want to spend most of your time around winners; people who are working hard to improve themselves and who never criticize, condemn or complain. You want to avoid those who find fault in everything and everyone and who seem to be perpetually in turmoil in their lives. They will drag you down and sap you of your positive energy. A good rule of thumb is to spend less than an hour a week with toxic people and more than an hour a week with winners.
When you make it a Rich Habit to associate with the winners in life, you will become a winner yourself.
