“ Curious that we spend more time congratulating people who have succeeded than encouraging people who have not. ”
Surround yourself only with people who are going to take you higher.
If you want to be successful, surround yourself with people who are more successful than you are, but if you want to be happy, surround yourself with people who are less successful than you are.
Competitors are not enemies. They are people who keep reminding you of your own shortcomings. Your quality control.
I guess that's just part of loving people: You have to give things up. Sometimes you even have to give them up.
