You are the average of the people you surround yourself with. It took me a long time to not only realize this, but to actually believe it.
Take some time to consider who you surround yourself with. What people around you are placing a seemingly invisible yet prominent influence on who you are? When I started to consider this question, I made a decision to improve my life for the better. I decided that there are only 3 types of people I want in my life:
- Those who inspire me
- Those who believe in me
- Those whom I believe in
These are the only 3 types of people who I want in my life because I believe they will only build me up, help me grow, and are worth investing in. The truth is, there aren’t a whole lot of people in my life, however, those that are fit into these categories. It’s worth having fewer friends in your life that support and inspire you than lots of friends that only pull you down or keep you from moving forward.
Who are the people you want in your life?
