    I first heard this phrase about two or three months ago and recently I have been seeing variations of it everywhere, coincidence or subconcious focus Im not sure. But, one thing I know is, it's got to be the biggest lifehack of all for anyone who wishes to become successful. I've noticed over the last few years how my old "lifetime" friends have really nothing to offer me anymore, they are all still relatively young but I feel so completely different from them and we have drifted apart, they are all approaching 30 and most are married, kids on the way, houses bought... You know the script... And it depresses the HELL out of me!

    I feel I'm now at a stage where I get to pick my friends, my social circle has almost completely diminished but when months ago I was feeling lonely and depressed, I know feel energised after playing this phrase over and over in my head. I'm now free to go out and ENGINEER my own social circle and be around the people who share the same life path as me and I've never felt more free.

    My question is... apart from networking online, how do you guys actually actively go out and associate with the people who are where you want to be and the people who can mentor you and bring out the best in you? I look forward to hearing your thoughts. Thank you.
