The 5 people around you is what determines your success in life.

"The 5 people around you is what determines your success in life. "
If that phrases scares you, you're not alone.
I was worried too because my 5 people consists of 
My husband who is very comfortable in his corporate job and a risk averse person and my parents, who are always shutting down my business ideas and telling my sister and I all the bad things that could happen.
For someone that is creative and always thinking about ways to feed into our business, this can be very hard to be around.  I have grown accustomed to the criticism and self doubt but if that's going to determine my success, I was terrified. I knew I was playing "small" and this was one of the reasons why I was afraid to take risks. 
But then I realized, the 5 people around me, 
doesn't have to be someone I see physically everyday
or someone I know personally.  
It can be someone that I aspire to be on instagram,
or a coach or mentor.
So that's what I do, I surround myself with these people everyday
by listening to their podcasts, following their social media accounts,
signing up for courses so I can learn from their success.
"You are the average of the 5 people you surround yourself with today."
Now go and find your "people!"
