The people you surround yourself with significantly impact your potential and how successful you become. If you surround yourself with people always seeking to improve themselves, those qualities will help push you to be better.
On the other hand, if you associate with people who engage in self-destructive habits, those habits will negatively affect you. Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions, especially during these unprecedented times. According to Mark Twain, small people always do that, but the greats make you feel that you, too, can become great.
Being around like-minded people will help you reach your goals and, in the process, allow you to become extraordinary.
