We're often attracted to people who are "like us" but this will work against us.
On the internet, we only ever see things that match our interests or points of views. That means that if you like chocolate cake but not vanilla cake, you are only going to see things about chocolate cake and not vanilla cake.
In some cases, like this, it's helpful but in most cases it's not.
If you like cake and not fitness, you will see lots of posts about cake and not fitness. Would it be helpful to see fitness posts? Probably. Perhaps this would help you kick your cake eating habits.
In business, if you only have people around you who act like you, think like you, talk like you, walk like you and agree with everything you say, how will you know what you're missing? How can you protect the down side? How can you be better at the things you are presently not good at?
In life, if you only hang out with people like you, how will you ever grow? How will you expand your thinking? When will you try new things? When will you be challenged? When will you have good conversations?
Challenges are like water to plants. We need it if we want to grow. Without it, we shrivel up and die (or at least our brain will).
Embrace your differences and be open minded. It's the only way you will ever grow (yourself or your business).
P.S. New Podcast is launching soon! More great stuff and fun conversations coming your way.
