If you want to be fast, run with the varsity team. If you want to learn a new language, immerse yourself in it in a new country. If you strive for success, work at Urban Office.
When you spend time with driven individuals, you are continuously reminded of the potential around you. Seeing people always strive for improvement and stay committed to their goals makes you raise your own standards. Even when you are not aware of it, who you spend your time with shapes your actions, thoughts, and behaviors on a daily basis. More directly, these individuals can act as mentors and resources, and provide insight into ways to navigate your entrepreneurial journey or career. Be around people and environments that push you to reach your greatest potential.
You become more like the people you spend your time with.
The motivational speaker Jim Rohn famously said, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” (Though we'd probably expand the circle a bit beyond five.) When you regularly expose yourself to certain ideas, behaviors, and attitudes, they are bound to impact your way of thinking. You can be empowered by friends who support you and engaged by friends who challenge you. The same effect can happen when friends and colleagues are unsupportive and unstimulating.
We all are our own person, but it can be beneficial to surround ourselves with people who share similar goals and values. Even unconsciously, we are always learning. Learn from kind people who hold themselves accountable and continue to raise the bar.
You will meet collaborators and gain new business.
Surround yourself with motivated people and you'll be surprised by the ways you end up working together. In a coworking space like Urban Office, most of the members offer services and skills that are complementary to each other. You meet creative types, web designers, marketers, software engineers, lawyers, and accountants; it’s almost like we could start our own company!
With professional drive comes the desire to grow and expand as a business. Expanding businesses are almost always in need of new services to help them attract new business, retain customers, and keep up with workflow. Being around go-getters and business owners will open more opportunities to collaborate professionally. You could find the perfect individual to help you with a project, or even a new client!
Everyone has something to teach you.
Whether or not they are in the same field as you, everyone has something to teach you. Our members are forging their path to success with pure grit, passion, and business acumen. They have overcome countless obstacles and have gotten to where they are by using resources and networks effectively. One conversation can change your outlook on a situation or provide a previously unseen solution to a problem. Even when people are in completely different industries and telling you facts that may seem irrelevant to your life, that knowledge can still prove useful later on or even just interesting in the moment! Every conversation broadens your perspective of the world.
You increase your odds of accomplishing your goals when you surround yourself with people who are on the way to accomplishing theirs. People who strive for success can be great resources for information and inspiration. When you are particularly motivated, you have probably noticed people gravitate towards you for the same reasons.
Urban Office is an excellent space for entrepreneurs and businesses to develop their ideas in a community filled with go-getters and creatives. If you want to surround yourself with people who strive for success, come on in and grab a seat.
