It took me years to realise that our closest connections are often mirrors of ourselves.
I did a friends audit in 2015, and realised that most of them agreed with everything I said, did and believed in.
Like-minded individuals, and comfort blankets too.
But just spending time with Jonny-clones wasn’t helping me learn, evolve or grow.
So, I found some people completely different to me:
- A preacher
- An international dealmaker
- A multi-millionaire internet marketer
- A hypnotherapist
- An Indian faith healer
- A Canadian podcaster
- A mind-coach on his way to global acclaim for his writing.
Within 12 months, I (and they) had transformed my life.
Inspired, encouraged and challenged by people NOT AT ALL like me, I found a new direction with incredible rewards and limitless potential.
Next time you find yourself saying, “oh, we’ve got soooo much in common”, ask yourself this:
Is that a good thing, or not?
