Power of Association

Aug 17, 2007
Personal development is a continuous process that powers our success in life. Everyone should plan his or her individual goals thereby evaluating progress on a regular basis. Needless to say, power of association is one of the excellent means for the concerned purpose. Many people walk in and out of our life but few of them help us to get acquainted with our strengths and weaknesses. Have you ever wondered why one person is successful and another not, yet they both have the same skills, education and talent.

We all have some core values that get translated into beliefs in later phases of life. However, primarily our parents instill these values in us in so acting as key influence of our lives. These beliefs provide us with a set of guidance and principles to move further to accomplish our objective. After our parents, comes the society that contributes a lot in shaping our confidence and restoring our belief and set of values. It can be addressed as our primary circle that more or less becomes our source of inspiration. We are like the company we keep. Therefore, determining our future is up to us but the important thing is to start somewhere.

Getting Started
We can look forward to our near ones who inspire us the most to provide an edge to our confident self. Once we begin to experience the benefits, it will gradually boost our spirits to gain self-development. When great heads meet, an exchange of ideas takes place. We all are prone to make mistakes, but few of us have the potential to recognize them. These are the people who correct them as they can see the things that we cannot; thus learning from their failures and faults. Nevertheless, mistakes are apparent indication that you are trying your hands at new things and testing your caliber.

Whatever endeavour you want to pursue in life whether it be career focused, business or sporting you want to associate yourself with successful like minded people. Sporting institutions have long discovered the benefits of bringing together elite athletes into one core sporting institute to develop them into gold medal winning athletes. The reason this is so powerful is that no matter how successful you are, the power of association will keep you alert and raises your standard.

Power of association really lies in doing something positive that must have the quality to change our living and put us on path of the success. Only hanging around successful people does not facilitate the process of achievement. We must share their core beliefs, ethics and morals to end up doing something good and meaningful in life.
