What actions have you taken in this area? Which new clubs and organizations did you join? What new places have you started hanging out where you'd expect to meet high-caliber people on a regular basis?
Being passive doesn't go very far in most cases. You will only stay stuck.
Do you at least have a list of the people you'd like to become friends with... or the qualities they possess... or a list of new organizations to join and places to hang out?
Yesterday I had lunch on the Vegas Strip with about 20 friends who work in the self-help field. They all came to Vegas for a Santana concert -- one of the band members ate with us. Many of these friends are millionaires. Did I find them by sitting at home? No, I met most of them by going to leadership retreats in Bermuda and Puerto Rico. I went to places where these kinds of people hang out. I also joined a group they belong to.
If you want new friends, get busy and go outside. If you keep doing what you've always done, you'll stagnate.
