Are you curious to know why some people seem to be more successful than others? Is it because they're smarter or better looking? Do they just work harder than everyone else? I thought the same questions.
That is until I came across a famous quote by Jim Rohn. He said “you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.” When I first read that quote, I Shrugged It off but. Later I got to thinking about it and the more I thought about it.
I looked at the people I was hanging around with. I began to believe it more sincerely, so I took some action and stopped hanging around with several people. I actually went out and met other people that were doing what I wanted to do.
People that seemed successful to me, and you know what happened? I started to see more success in my life! it's amazing how the statement “you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with” really is.
Sit down and really think about who the five people are that you spend the most time with. Analyze what they mean to you. Are they supporting you. Are they going in the direction that you want to go? Or are they always cynical and holding you back? That's really the biggest question.
Now don't get me wrong! I'm not saying go out and cut people completely out of your life. You may have been friends for a long time, but the quote States the people you spend the most time with. Really concentrate and focus on those people.
Real change only happens when you have made a conscious decision to do things differently then you have been doing them. I know change can be quite scary. The alternative is to just keep doing the same thing and keep getting the same results.
It's hard to soar with the Eagles when you were down here with all these turkeys! I'm not sure who to give credit to for that quote but I sure do like it and it's a very true statement. Are you hanging around with turkeys but want to fly with the Eagles?
There's going to have to be a change. The slightest mindset shift can make all the difference in the world.
I's time to get on that list. Take a close look at the 5 people you spend the most time with. Do they share your vision? Do they have the same goals and aspirations? If not, it's time to find some people that do.
