It’s a fact of life that some people hold us back, while others propel us forward. For instance, you can’t hang out with negative people and expect to have a positive life.
The way I look at it, the most important tool at our disposal for living a better life, is other people.
The people we surround ourselves with are the biggest influence on our behavior, attitudes, and results. Who you around set the course of your life and shapes who you are. They determine what conversations dominate your attention. They affect to which attitudes and behaviors you are regularly exposed. Eventually, you start to think as they think and behave as they behave.
In the words of motivational speaker Jim Rohn: “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”
So, ask yourself: Who do you spend the most time with? Who are the people you most admire? Are those two groups of people the same?
Be honest with yourself and get ready to become the person you were always meant to be.P
