The most important truth in your career, who are you surrounded by

I've been staring at this post on Forbes on career truths.

I’ve also come to learn that in business sometimes it’s strategically (and monetarily) beneficial to remain under the radar.

As I sat down to write, I began looking over interviewing and career articles that I’ve written in the past as well as some content that was written by others.

Both fail to mention some very pertinent career truths or distort reality. Here are 7 that pieces of career truths that you don’t normally read about.

The one truth that resonated as the most important is the choice of who you surround yourself with.

3. You are who you surround yourself with – Be careful whom you associate with. Choose colleagues and friends carefully.

Surround yourself with sincere, honest, optimistic, kind, resilient and hard working people. Your potential will far exceed that of someone who associates themselves with highly controlling, jealous and pessimistic individuals.
