I got to agree with that in terms of birds of the same feather flock together.

Yes, and that is only a local maximum. The supporting network can be even better if it is diversified (but doesn't include pure negative influences):

It's vital to have some variety in personalities, points of view, backgrounds, goals, and where they are in their journey.

This way, you are not going to be inside of the bubble that'll make you believe you're doing the right thing when in truth, you are about to fail grandiosely.
