Learning from successful people can be an effective way to gain insight, knowledge, and inspiration. Most of us look at the new year as a chance to start fresh and create a trajectory for a new life. But transformation doesn’t come on its own. You have to make a conscious decision to succeed.
Making better decisions may require you to “sever” the unimportant aspects of your life. Those are the things that are keeping you distracted from pursuing your full potential. Successful people often present a wealth of knowledge and expertise that can expose us to innovative ideas and new ways of thinking. Surrounding yourself with successful people can prime your mind toward making better decisions and achieving your goals faster.

Big decisions are what lead to transformational shifts in our lives. Now is the time to decide what changes you want to make in 2023. If there is one big strategic move you want to make this year that would change your life forever, what would that move be?
These 8 core questions can help you think like successful people and recreate your future:
