Choose Your Tribe

One of the most important decisions we make in life is who we choose to be around. In fact, there is an old proverb that reads, “Show me your friends and I’ll tell you who you are.” Quite often we become like the people we’re around. Based on that, we must be cautious about whom we surround ourselves with because of the short- and long-term implications.

If you hang around people who don’t like their jobs, you’ll become like them. If you hang around people who don’t care about growing in the company, you won’t grow in the company.

To get you started, here are some lessons from Mr Mia to help you surround yourself with the right people:


Choose your tribe…

We lean on our friends a lot. We share our successes and challenges with them. It’s important these people be the ones who support and encourage us. We must find a support system of friends who will support and challenge us.

Do an analysis of your circle of friends and see whether they add to your life or take away from it. Surround yourself with people who will help you reach your goals. If you want to be financially successful, surround yourself with those who are financially successful.


Drown out the negativity…

We live in a world that surrounds us with negativity. We get it regularly from media outlets because it sells. There is no shortage of it from the people around you every day. There are unfortunately people in our lives who drain us of our energy because they thrive on sharing their own negativity. Refuse it. Don’t just walk away from the negativity–run. Get as far away from it as you can. Not only does it impact our perspective with regard to our own lives, it impacts our mental health.

While your success can be determined in part by whom you surround yourself with, it can also be determined in part by whom you choose to not surround yourself with.


Give important relationships your all…

Our lives are so busy that sometimes we have to dedicate the time to interact with the people who mean the most to us. Sometimes we have to make hard choices about what to eliminate in order to dedicate time to the relationships. These relationships in your professional and personal life are as important to your job satisfaction as the work itself. Do everything in your power to surround yourself with the right people.


Happy New Year to you all. We wish you one of great joy, love and much success.

Mr Sayed Mia knows that the starting point of great success and achievement has always been the same. It is for you to dream big dreams. There is nothing more important, and nothing that works faster than for you to cast off your own limitations than for you to begin dreaming and fantasizing about the wonderful things that you can become, have, and do.

As a wise man once said, “You must dream big dreams, for only big dreams have the power to move the minds of men.” When you begin to dream big dreams, your levels of self-esteem and self-confidence will go up immediately. You will feel more powerful about yourself and your ability to deal with what happens to you. The reason so many people accomplish so little is because they never allow themselves to lean back and imagine the kind of life that is possible for them.

The three keys that Mr Mia wants you to learn, in order to live without are clarity, competence, and concentration.


  1. Clarity

Clarity means that you are absolutely clear about who you are, what you want, and where you’re going.

  1. Competence

Competence means that you begin to become very, very good in the key result areas of your chosen field. You never stop growing.

  1. Concentration

Concentration is having the self-discipline to force yourself to concentrate single-mindedly on one thing, the most important thing, and stay with it until it’s complete.


There are two key words for success, and they are – focus and concentration.Focus is knowing exactly what you want to be, have, and do. Concentration is persevering, without distraction toward accomplishing the things that can make a real difference in your life.

When you allow yourself to begin to dream big dreams, creatively abandon the activities that are taking up too much of your time, and focus your inward energies on alleviating your main constraints, you start to feel an incredible sense of power and confidence. As you focus on doing what you love to do and becoming excellent in those few areas that can make a real difference in your life, you begin to think in terms of possibilities rather than impossibilities, and you move ever closer toward the realization of your full potential.

We hope that you find inspiration in todays post as well as in the video below which Mr Mia has chosen to go along with it.
