"Choose the people around you wisely because they will significantly impact your potential and how successful you become. If you surround yourself with wise people whose focus is continuously improving and bettering themselves, those qualities will help push you to be better.
On the other hand, if you associate with people who engage in self-destructive habits, those habits will negatively affect you. Being around like-minded people will help you reach your goals and, in the process, allow you to become extraordinary."
