A large part of personal growth is finding people to inspire and motivate you along the way. This includes the social circles you surround yourself with, but also influencers and teachers through books, podcasts, blogs or other social avenues. As you progress through the journey of self-development, you’ll eventually find that it will be helpful to expand who you associate with. Deeply connecting and learning from those you are surrounded by has the highest impact on your growth, but finding people you don’t personally know to learn from is a great supplement. It is what changed my life.
