There are five types of people that you must surround yourself with if you want to live a high quality life:

The Inspired

The inspired people are those who create the urge or ability for you to do something within your life. These are the people who create a feeling of awe within you and create a state of mind that is empowering as opposed to disempowering.

The inspired are those who spark a curiosity within your heart and mind and cause you to search for inspiration elsewhere as well. They breed n environment of inspiration which leads to high quality results in life.

The Passionate

The passionate people are those who express their intensity through the medium of life. They immerse themselves in what they become deeply engaged in and find themselves in flow.

These are the people who, like the inspired individuals, infect you with their ability to become passionate. They cause you to reflect on your own levels of passion and guide you curiously to a place where you can be just as passionate as them.

Their passion is obvious and spills out of them. They have that glitter in their eye and love in their heart.

The Motivated

The motivated people are those who get things done. They very rarely struggle with accomplishing tasks because they have a strong vision and why for their life.

The reason why the motivated people are so critical in your life is because they show you how to become a person who is intrinsically motivated as opposed to extrinsically motivated. In other words, they show you how to cultivate motivation from within as opposed to having your motivation being dictated by the environment.

These people work hard on their journey and set the example for how hard you must work on your own craft and life. They show you how to set a schedule, focus on the important things, knock out one task after another, so on and so forth.

The Grateful
