“Tell me who your friends are, and I tell you who you are.” Identity itself revolves around the kinds of people you hang out with and spend most of your time with.
When you hang out with people who spend most of their time playing computer games, you are more likely to be inclined with online gaming. If your friends are studying entrepreneurship, success, investments, and business opportunities, you would want to succeed and grow with your career too.
Friendships reflect the things that interest you the most and the values that matter to you.
Thus, it is vital that you select the good ones to help you grow in your personal and career development.
What makes a good friend?
Upon reaching adulthood, we notice that the circle of friends reduces over time. It gets more complex to find “good friends” in your 20s to 30s. There can be acquaintances, but it is rare to find ones you can count as true friends.
You are not missing out on anything when you are busy working on your goals and dreams. Your priorities are leaning toward long-term goals now. You only want to spend your time, money, and energy more wisely.
A good friend should be your asset and not a liability. They make you feel at peace instead of making you feel bad or causing unnecessary drama. True friends genuinely love celebrating your success, so they biome a part of it. They know your time’s importance and do not demand you more than you can give. They support you and believe in your major life decisions.
Your friends give you that extra push when you most need it. At times, it is as if you are privileged to have a life coach for free. The real ones accept you the way you are and whom you are becoming.
How Good Friends are Best Influencers for Your Success
Studies reveal that your chosen friends can influence your financial goals, career opportunities, work performance, and life success in general. The essence of building a friendship is to improve our way of life. We can agree that life experiences become better and more exciting with friends. Research also suggests that having friends boosts resilience, making it easier to bounce back. A solid relationship and support from them greatly influence your career.
Here are proven ways that your friends can help you get the most of your personal and professional life:
- Friends are great motivators.
- Friends reinforce your self-control
- Friends help you improve your performance at work
- Friends expand your network that leads to more success
- Friends make you healthier and happier
“Some friends do bring out the best in you, and so it’s good to invest in those friendships.” – Bill Gates.
7 Qualities of Friends Power Tool for Success
- Honest/ Trustworthy
The first part of the solution is to create a culture around solid friendship. Those who do not understand your life changes are filtering themselves out of the circle you once had. Old companies start to fall apart, but the real ones stay, and new ones will come. By now, you can now discern the good friends from the people that you’re better off without.
The power of having good friends is genuinely heartfelt. It is essential to achieving your dream legacy as an entrepreneur or a business partner. At the same time, it is excellent for your health and happiness. Build a circle of friends who talks about investments, business ideas, personal growth and long-term goals. Success is within reach when you have terrific friends that got your back.
Cheers to true and long-lasting friendships!
