Models of Success
One of the best possible advices someone told me many years ago was to surround ourselves of positive and successful people. I was told that we are the average of the 5 closest persons we have in our life. Before it was pretty hard to find people of success, let alone be their friends, but in today’s world it’s pretty easy to do it, we have books, ebooks, kindle and tablets to read them, audio books, videos, Skype, and all the power of the internet to serve us of this purpose. Even Facebook, Youtube and Twitter can be amazing tools of learning if you use them well.
There are no limits anymore, there are no excuses, today is another world, the barriers that once held our parents have no power over us today, and even then, there were amazing people who were able to do many amazing things by using the power of hard work and trying always to be the best.
