Your work environment makes a huge difference when it comes to the level of success that you achieve.
It’s said you become the same as the five people you spend the most time within life.
So if you hang out with people who choose to slack off and complain all the time, you’ll become someone who looks to cut corners and toss the blame when something goes wrong.
If you surround yourself with elite individuals who accept no excuses and represent what winning looks like at all times, well, you’d be surrounded by the apex of life.
For most of us, the people we spend the most time with are the people we surround ourselves with at work. Some high performers might spend 50-60 hours per week on the job with their co-workers.
Many times they become like a family. So when you sit back and think about the people you work with, the ones you call a family, are they helping you to succeed, or are they dragging you down to their level of complacency.
If the people closest to you don’t push you to become a better version of yourself, you are in big trouble.
The problem with being stuck in a toxic environment, one like an office where everyone is miserable and complains all day, is that even if you’re a positive person, their negativity will eventually creep in on you.
One of the biggest problems is that typically those who are positive people also tend to be empaths and want to listen and console those who feel badly.
They will find themselves looking to others complaining, and before you know it, twenty or thirty minutes has passed where neither employee has gotten any work done.
As a business owner, this is something to be highly concerned about and aware of. Efficiency in business means everything when you operate at a high level.
Creating a culture of positivity in the workplace can be the difference between success and failure.
Whether you are the business owner or an employee who wants to enjoy life a little bit more, the best thing you can do is create a positivity culture in the workplace.
Choose not to indulge in complaint sessions. That time can be better spent on solving problems and closing deals. The more deals you are closing, the more money you make, and the less you’ll have to complain about it.
Not that money solves everything, but it certainly helps eliminate a lot of stress in life. Typically the reason people are complaining, to begin with, is because they aren’t making enough money, and it’s causing issues in other areas of their personal life like their marriage or with other addictions.
If you choose to focus on only the good things in your life, you will find that those who want to be negative continually won’t come around you anymore.
They will see that you aren’t interested in sharing in their misery, and this will allow you to focus on what continually makes you happy. A simple way to stay focused on the positive things in life is to live by the <G>Code.

When you choose to live by a certain standard of life, the people around you will step up to be on your level, or step off and go their own way.
It can be a hard transition going from average to elite, but if you want to become the version of you that you know exists, you have to choose to go all in.
Sometimes that means taking a leap of faith and leaving the toxic work environment you’ve been holding on too and starting your own business. Other times it could mean giving up a relationship with someone who no longer serves to help you achieve your goals.
It doesn’t have to be a negative thing between you and that person; you simply have to let them know you are focusing on becoming a better version of you.
If they don’t understand or want to argue about why that’s wrong, it will be a clear indicator of why they need to be removed from your life, to begin with.
