What would you think of someone whose friends are all partiers, often get drunk and end up wondering what happened from the night before? Now, what would you think of someone whose friends all gather for a book club dedicated to reading self-help books and tossing around ideas on how to improve themselves? If you had to choose one of these two types of people to hire and it had to be one of the two who would you hire? Our future is determined by the people we surround ourselves with. You do one thing out of the ordinary to try and improve yourself, but your friends question it.
They pull you back in, and they make you feel guilty. Some may even have the best intentions. So, how do you find like minded people to hang out with? When I was a teenager, I got into a lot of trouble. That was one of the reasons why my family immigrated to Canada. The second was the relationship issue with my parents. She wanted to move to Canada. As I said, a big factor was that I was getting into fights, smoking cigarettes and all that kind of trouble.
One time, my parents even had to go to the police station to bail me out. I was about 13 years old at the time. You have to get him away from these bad influences. Because of the environment I lived in, I developed a lot of bad habits that stuck with me for years. I was forced into a new environment in Canada, separated from the people I was hanging out with in Hong Kong the ones who got me in trouble. Now I had entered a new country with no friends.
But that became the new issue. Who would want to hang out with a toxic or negative person, or someone like me with a bad past? My English was very poor. How could I make friends? I tried to keep my head down, but I ended up catching the attention of bullies. Rather than make friends, I hid myself away. But this was at least an improvement from before. I no longer had any bad influences around me to pull me down, and I was free to try and improve myself without judgment from others.
I was lucky because all of this happened when I was young. My parents put me in a situation where I was forced to improve myself, and forced to end my relationships with bad influences. I learned a lot from them and I learned how to become more productive. If you want to be a better person and hang out with better people, then the best way is to find a mentor. When I was in my early 20s, I was working with my first mentor, Alan Jacques, who belonged to a mastermind group. At the time, there were six people in the group and all of them were very successful millionaires. Everyone in the group was like minded people.
I was the youngest guy in the group, the least experienced, and the least successful. But because I was working with my mentor Alan, he would bring me along to those mastermind meetings. I would sit and observe, take notes, but not say a whole lot. I was by far the poorest one in the entire group which actually meant I was the one benefiting the most from the knowledge being shared. Belonging to a group like this expanded my contacts and my opportunities. I was able to learn from successful entrepreneurs who were years ahead of me with much more experience and many more achievements than myself.
At the time, I was more worried about thousand dollar problems, but they were talking about million dollar problems. Felt so out of place in those meetings, especially while they talked about investments and business ventures. After going to my eight meeting, something inside me clicked. This realization changed my belief system. It allowed me to see myself doing what they were doing. This group was the first way I found successful, like minded people, to hang out with. Want to meet like minded people? Open yourself up to a new environment. This is actually the way that I met my first mentor, Alan, the one I just told you about.
I always used to receive these marketing letters from Alan Jacques. I admired those letters, even collected them and kept them in 3-ring binders because I loved the marketing style of them. One day, I went to one of the free events that was run by Alan. I was sitting there listening to the speaker, taking notes, when I looked over to the man next to me. His nametag read, Alan Jacques. Alan was shocked. Noone had approached him like that before. Most people just threw away the letters and there I was, a random kid, getting excited over some pieces of paper.
I offered to take Alan out to eat and he said yes. You can have fun by going on a trip outside of your city, but turn that trip into a business opportunity. Go to conferences, spend a little money, get on a plane if you have to. Meet some new and interesting people. If you want to meet new people, you need to invest a little bit of money. Go meet the people you want to meet with. Go hang out in the environment that they hang out in. This is critical to connect with like minded people. You could offer to buy them lunch the same way I did with my first mentor.
I walked up to him and asked if I could buy him a drink. We talked for three hours. He probably got paid tens of thousands of dollars to speak for 90 minutes. I got three hours of personal time with him by buying him a drink for only a few dollars. There are so many of these types of opportunities waiting for you.
You just have to keep an eye out for them. The third way to meet like minded people is on the internet. There are tons of great Facebook groups you can . Niche Facebook groups help you meet like minded people who share your goals. I wish I had access to these online groups when I was first starting out. With that in mind, I wanted to make sure that I gave my students from around the world this opportunity that I would have loved to have. We lift each other up when the rest of the world is trying to pull us down. There are others who have been down the same road and can help you along your own journey.
You can find these like minded people from around the world and start a conversation.Like minded needed
