Believe it or not, when I was in elementary to middle school, (Grades K-8th). I was picked on, bullied and quite frankly treated like filth.
I could probably count on one hand how many “friends” I had during that time.
Then the summer before my freshman year of highschool, I moved to Minnesota with my mom. I was able to start all over.
From then on out, I transformed myself, I discovered myself and during my 9th grade year, I finally became “popular”. I became one of “the cool kids”.
So now we fast-forward nearly 17 years… Am I still a “cool kid?” Am I still popular?
The answer is actually quite irrelevant. Because here’s what I discovered:
“It isn’t who you hang out with that makes you popular. It’s who you become.”
On top of that, it isn’t about what “cliques” and “groups” you are a part of. It’s who you associate yourself with.
If you find yourself hanging out with a bunch of lazy asses, chances are you’re a lazy ass yourself. (Forgive the bluntness).
If you’re hanging out or associating yourself with people who are convinced hard work at a J.O.B. to eventually retire is the way to go… chances are that’s what you’re doing now.
So in order for you to BE something else. You need to ASSOCIATE yourself with people who are where you want to be.
If you’re serious about moving forward in your life. You need to associate, listen and learn from the people who are already on the level you’d like to be.
The MOBE Inner Circle does just that.
