Building your network of connections is one of the most valuable and efficient ways for you to develop the relationships you need to achieve your goals. Your network will help you attain feedback and expand your knowledge in a much shorter timeframe than if you had to go at it on your own. Additionally, this opens up your network's network of connections so your potential for meeting people to help you attain your goals extends even further. Ask yourself who you can connect with who will help you reach your objectives faster and speed up your learning curve. Seek out those who are already where you want to be - these are the people you need to get advice from.
Start by looking at your current network. The people you spend the most time around affect your thinking, your actions, your mood, your standards... So ask yourself - who are the people in your life right now who will help you grow? Who are the people you know who are doing big things, working towards achieving their goals, who are the people in your life that you most want to be like?
"If you hang out with five confident people, you're going to be the sixth. If you hang out with five intelligent people, you'll be the sixth. If you hang out with five funny people, it will rub off on you. But what if you hang out with five idiots? What happens? It's going to rub off on you. Five Alcoholics? Same thing." - Peter Voogd
You become more like the people you spend the most time around, so lower the amount of time you spend with people who you feel bring you down or who are not in the same go-getter headspace as you.
Be around people who are high-agency, people who make things happen. And be sure you understand and curate your circle of influence.
