Climbing Mountains: Surround Yourself with the Right People

When it comes to achieving success, who we surround ourselves with can make all the difference. The people we surround ourselves with can have a profound impact on our attitude, mindset, and ultimately, our level of success. 

As the famous quote goes, "You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with." If we want to reach our full potential, it's essential that we surround ourselves with people who are driven, ambitious, and relentless in their pursuit of success. These are the people who plan in decades but live in moments. They understand that life is short and that we must make the most of every opportunity that comes our way. They are not content to simply coast along, but are constantly pushing themselves to be better, to achieve more, and to make an impact.

It's not just about having a great team or a supportive family, it's about surrounding ourselves with individuals who are at the top of their game. Individuals who are not afraid to take risks, who are constantly learning, and who are always pushing the boundaries of what's possible. These are the people who will challenge us to think differently, inspire us to reach new heights, and ultimately help us achieve our goals.

These relentless humans also understand the importance of balance. They train like savages, putting in the hard work and dedication required to achieve their goals. But they also know how to relax and enjoy life, recognizing that success is not just about work, but also about family, friends, and making memories.

One person who embodies this relentless spirit is John Paul DeJoria, the co-founder of Paul Mitchell Hair Systems and The Patrón Spirits Company. DeJoria had a rough start in life, growing up in a foster home and experiencing homelessness in his early twenties. But he never let his circumstances define him. He worked hard, took risks, and surrounded himself with people who believed in him and his vision. He started his first business with just $700 and went on to build two successful companies. Today, he is worth over $3 billion and is considered one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the world.

He never gave up on his dreams, even in the face of adversity. He surrounded himself with people who believed in him and his vision, and who helped him turn his dreams into reality. He also made sure to surround himself with individuals who were at the top of their game, who could teach him and help him grow.

The story of John Paul DeJoria is a perfect example of how a person goes rags to riches, with the help of the right people and can achieve anything he desires. As John Paul DeJoria said "I've failed many times in my life, but I've never let failure stop me from trying again." 

It is important to surround ourselves with people who are relentless and ambitious, to find balance in work and life. Seek people who are climbing mountains and climb together.
