You will meet thousands of people throughout your life. Each one of them has the chance to play a huge role and create a momentous influence in your story. Even though we can’t possibly control the casting for every relationship, we can be intentional about seeking out certain types of individuals and spending more time with them.
In this article, I want to help define a few of the people that all high performers need to surround themselves with in order to succeed. Success and happiness comes from within, but it’s also very much about the people we choose to have around us. While toxic people can be disastrous to our energy and sense of self, the right friends, mentors and partners can support us, empower us, uplift us and help us take on the world. They’ll be the team, the tribe, the family that helps you get where you’re trying to go.

Do you still have a few vacancies? Don’t worry, just be open with the problems or people you're missing and you'll begin to attract them.
Are there some people who quickly come to mind? Tell them what they mean to you. Thank them and pass this along.
Any chance you get, be the love and support to others that you're getting in return. We all play many of these roles to various people’s lives. You might be the listener to one and the coach to the next. Share your encouragement, wisdom, skills, feedback and energy. It's the best way to say thanks to the people who have pulled you up on the path to greatness.
