Surrounding Yourself with the Right People

I watched a special on the Beatles last night…

‘Eight Days a Week – The Touring Years’ – a film by Ron Howard…

Paul McCartney said that before he met John Lennon, people would ask him what he liked to do…

He said, ‘Write songs.’

They’d say, ‘That’s nice. What do you think about the football?’

And then he met John Lennon…

John said, ‘What do you like to do?’

Paul said, ‘Write songs.’

John said, ‘Me, too.’

They formed a group, started performing and writing songs together…

Brian Epstein saw them perform, took them out of their leather jackets, had them sized up for suits and became their manager…

He saw their potential…

They started working with George Martin, who had been working with Spike Milligan and the likes…

He related to their sense of humour and saw their potential…

The moral of the story?

The majority of the people around you won’t support your dreams if your dreams are outside the worker bee mentality…

And in the creative field…

They can’t relate and will do everything they can to keep you where they feel comfortable…

And playing small…

I’m talking family and close friends…the people closest to you who you would think have your best interests at heart and as much as they say they do…

But they only have their best interests and heart to the point of what they THINK is best for you…

And they want to save your from disappointment…

But you know what the BIGGEST disappointment is?

Laying on your death bed wishing you’d taken a chance…

Surround yourself with like minded people who can see your light shining even brighter than you can…

People who believe in you…

People who are there for you 110% of the way…

People who encourage you to push your boundaries, call you out on your bullshit and who believe you have the power within you to bring your ‘unrealistic’ dreams to life…

Were the Beatles were good in their own right? Of course, but it was having the people around them who believed in them who saw the bigger picture who helped them bring their dream to life bigger and better than they could have ever imagined…

It’s near impossible to succeed to great heights on your own…

SURROUND YOURSELF WITH BRIGHT SHINING LIGHTS WHO BELIEVE IN YOU

My specialty is seeing the light shining in others…

Seeing their potential to be an extraordinary human being even when they don’t see it themselves…

It can be too much for most…

They find it too confronting and retreat back to their comfort zone…

But for the chosen few who are prepared to be called out on their own bullshit…

It’s a match made in heaven…

You’ve tried long enough to do this on your own…
