Stop and take a look around.
Who are you choosing as your friends, colleagues, and employees?
Those who continue to bring out your best self…
or those who put you in touch with your lesser self?
Studies show that if you want to lose weight, hang out with people who eat well and exercise. If you want to stay out of jail, hang out with people who live by strong moral and ethical values. If you want to be successful, surround yourself with people who are already successful.
It’s not rocket science…unless that’s what you’re into...in which case go ahead and surround yourself with rocket scientists.
In order to achieve the goals that are important to you, you must be in control of your choices. In order to be in control of your choices, you must first be aware of them.
Make a list of the 5 people in your life that you invest the most time with. As you look at each name on your list, dare to ask yourself one simple question:
“Does this person bring out my best self or put me in touch with my lesser self?”
If the answer is ‘my lesser self’, maybe it’s time to invest some lesser time with them and invest more time with people who bring out what is best in you.
