Iron sharpens iron. Surround yourselves with the right people. Challenge people to be better. They may not like it now but they will thank you for it later.
Even if they don't they will know what you did in their lives. In 2017, impact lives, including yours.
Who are your first 11? Reflect deeply on this and you may find you need to make some substitutions. 2017 is there for the taking, take it.
