How do i find more people that inspire me and push me to get better in what i want to do?

I have big goals for my future, i want to work in the international field in organizations like the UN, but right now I feel a bit stuck and don't seem to find people or mentors that elevate me. I don't know who to reach out to or how to change this and I feel like i need to have better surroundings of people that actually make me learn new things, are ambiguous and smart and give me new ideas.
