How Your Inner Circle Can Prevent You From Any Success

Twitter Post


There’s homeless twin brothers that I work with on the street almost daily.

They’ve been out here for years and have a rough narcotics addiction.

Two of the nicest dudes I talk to out in the street, but narcotics users nonetheless and crime comes hand in hand with that.

We’re working to get them into detox, but here’s the catch; the detox location they would go to won’t take them both at the same time.

The reason:

They used to allow couples, friends, siblings to all go to detox together, but they’re was too much turnover.

When one was successful and the other wasn’t, the successful one would get pulled down. The negative would most times outweigh the positive.

Similar to the story of crabs in a bucket. The one climbing out would get pulled down.

So now we’re working to find a way around this and get them both help.

📌 My point:

You may not realize it, but the people you surround yourself around have a HUGE affect on your success.

This is an idea that can be taken into friendships, marriages, businesses, and in this case, staying sober.

The opposite is also true. If you’re around people with a massive positive influence on you, it will lift you up to another level.

This seems obvious.

I know you know this.

But it’s eye opening when you look at it from a standpoint of getting clean, sober and off the street.
