zen habits published an article last week about if we are a lift or drag force.
They start with the fact that our development and our being is highly influenced by the people surrounding us:
In our lives, the people around us lift us up, or they drag us down.
This is nothing new and discussed in a zillion articles, blogs and books. But what I really like in the quick-read article of zen habits, is that they turn the tables.
Which are you? The lift or the drag force on people around you?
Like all the people surrounding and influencing us, we influence people too. For me it´s super important to be openminded for new ideas and to talk about entrepreneurship and so on. With this I want to courage people to stick to their ideas, think about them and go ahead in their process.
The more people talk with each other about their ideas, the more we are a lift force, the less is the risk of an idea drifting off.
We should always keep in mind how a short conversation can lead to new ideas or courage someone to go the next step in his project.
Are you a lift force for your friends?
