Why Does Business Success Result In Losing Friends

It is a well known phenomenon that as you become successful you will lose people from your life, sometimes you will even lose family. It is a fact, get used to it. If it hasn’t happened to you yet, you are either a most extraordinary person, or you just haven’t quite made it to the point of being a success yet. Don’t worry, you will get there, just do not let losing friends owing to your business success ever be a deterrent to you.

relationshipsNot all friends are designed to follow along with you through life. Most of them come and go and that is ok. It is the way that things work out. Just make sure that as your business grows, and you become more and more successful, that you continue to build and foster new relationships. When you look back at the friends that you had very early on in school, odds are very good that you still only talk with a few of them, and the same for your friends that you had in high school and college. Once we graduate we no longer really have a reason to continue to talk with them and well, our life just gets busy.

Business Success Brings Change

As you create more business success, your life will continue to get busier and to take you in different directions than that of many of your friends and family. You may have to move, in fact it is almost a sure thing that you will. And likely several times or more. In most cases business success doesn’t happen overnight, and it often requires a series of attempts before you find something that takes off and starts to first pay the bills, then the wages and eventually, you.  business success

Rather than fretting about the loss of friends and contacts, it is much more productive to look carefully at the business successcharacter of the people around you and choose wisely when you are making new friends. It is much easier to be more selective about the friends that you are making than the ones that you already have. Look for people with similar interests (or complimentary ones), and even more importantly look for those that are more successful than you are. It isn’t that they are better than you are, they are just a little further around the track than you and you can learn something from them. business success

As you and your business grow and become more successful, always be looking for friends in the people that are following you. You can help them along, and there is nothing that fosters learning as much as teaching. It is the natural evolution of things. You will befriend people that have less success than you currently do, just as those ahead of you have done for you.

So while it is true that business success equals a loss of friends, it is equally true that business success equals a lot of new friends too. Because really, the choice is yours.

    Thanks Martin. I was just reading an article today about what the dying most regret, and one of the things was not making more of an effort to keep in touch with their good friends.

    This is so true Sigrid. My husband and I have done property developing for some years and as we got more and more successful so our friends became more distant. At the same time I started a business and then the recession hit and my business failed along with us nearly losing everything we had in property. We have managed to come out the other side though. However, during a phone call with my father the other evening we were talking about my finances and he even said “Just because you were stupid enough to think you could make a success of a business”. I was totally taken aback by this as I never thought my father would be like that but just goes to show. Hence I don’t tell him now that I am trying to make a success of another business.

    First of all I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Many thanks!

    Thanks so much for your kind words. One strategy that I use when beginning my blog post is to not focus on creating a beginning, but rather just begin writing, even if it’s the middle or the end of a blog post. Frequently an idea for the post’s beginning will emerge as I am writing.
