4 Types Of People to Surround Yourself With For Success.


We have all heard the saying that “your net worth is in your network” but what does that really mean in this introverted culture? (my personal opinion and not the views of Studio 17 Creative) It is very well documented that the people you spend the most time with tend to either sharpen or dull your proverbial blade. If the people you surround yourself with have a negative view of every single situation then guess what your view will be? Yep “you guessed it and you was right!” So the question is:

Who are you surrounding yourself with?

Could you imagine if the Lions that formed Voltron weren’t compatible? The people you surround yourself with are the Lions that and the success journey is Voltron. Here are 4 personality types that we think should be part of your inner circle in order to keep you focused on your success journey.

Relentless workers.

You probably know somebody who is a relentless worker, or perhaps you are one yourself. These types of workers push us to work harder each and every day. While measuring personal success against the success of another is like comparing apples and oranges, we can measure our drive with the drive of other relentless workers. True passion and commitment will breed a successful business.

Positive attitudes.

People tend to be better at what they’re doing if they’re happy. Negative attitudes can drag down work ethic and they don’t offer any inspiration for success or innovation. Surrounding yourself with negative people can bog down your creativity and drive and it could ultimately be the downfall of your business. People with positive attitudes can actually have the opposite effect, facilitating your leap towards success more effectively. Bringing happiness inside the workplace will keep morale high and will keep people looking 

People who ask questions.

Albert Einstein once said “the important thing is to not stop questioning.” As entrepreneurs, we should constantly be asking questions about ourselves and our business. However, no single person will think of every important question. People who ask questions may provide a different angle on an issue or an idea, and these questions could ultimately lead to an important breakthrough for you or your business. Perspective is everything.


Some non-entrepreneurial types will consider all entrepreneurs “dreamers.” However, we understand that setting goals and working hard will help us achieve what many consider to be unachievable. To keep this drive going, we should always be surrounding ourselves with people who have similar goals in mind. These dreamers don’t even need to be involved in the same industry as you or your business; the important thing is that you keep close people with big plans for themselves. Seeing other people’s drive will keep you hungry to reach your goals.


You are the sum of who you spend your time with. Make sure that you are directly involved with people who lift you, inspire you, and motivate you to do and be more. As you grow and your business grows, this might mean changing friends and colleagues, and that’s part of life. Just trust that hard work, positivity, and keeping your sights high are things you can’t risk deviating from if you want the life you dream of.
