Hey Yash Tripathi,

I come from a small village too. Without being like-minded, you can focus on the good of people around you. There are many things that are different about my parents and siblings that I wouldn’t necessarily want to copy, but there are great lessons to learn within each of them. My mom is the hardest working person I know and I definitely look up to her for that. One of my brothers started raising his children with barely nothing and succeeds pretty well.

But apart from that, you can spend more time with people that are not physically near you too. There are plenty of online groups of like-minded people. My SkillUp your Life program is a community of people developing new skills for example. Being a nomad, a lot of times I surround myself with people in the online world more than in person.

But also, some may not agree with me on this, but reading other people is a way to “spend” time them. That can be biographies or just their blog.

Hope that helps!
