How to get from where you are to where you want to be

How do I find the ideal partner?

“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”
Jim Rohn – Successful author and Self-made millionaire

You have the idea,passion and ambition. However to get to your destination you will need help along the way. This question is thus the next logical step to get your project, idea or business moving. There is no definitive guide which will successfully help you answer this question. I refer to two sources this question pops up. Jack Welch – Winning & Jim Collins – From Good to Great. If you haven’t read these I would strongly encourage you to pick them up at the earliest.

Over the years I have been part of many teams and have selected multiple partners for business projects. I was having a conversation regarding Jim Collins point of view on “First Who“(courtesty http://www.jimcollins.com). He has encapsulated a concept which was very abstract to me “How do great teams come together?”. I used to think that luck probably plays a big role. Then this point of view completely changed that. Now it is clear to me that before you set out to find that partner whether it be in business, at your job or even a life partner we have to pay very close attention to the people around us first. What sort of core values do they have, do they share similar beliefs and principles, do they take responsibility for their life and action and are they committed to making the lives of people around them and their own extraordinary.

To do this practically over the last few years I have identified people who I respect and admire for what they have accomplished in this life. I have spoken to them at great length about the principles they follow and believe in. This has resulted in a positive impact on the quality of my life as well as the progress in my business ventures. I am a firm believer in the law of attraction which states that who you get is not determined by who you want. It is determined by who you are.

So before you set out to find your ideal partner take a step back and take a deeper look into yourself first and the people around you.
