Not the people in the picture.
Surround yourself with people that lift you up.
This seems axiomatic.
I mean, why would anyone spend time with people that pull them down?
We do though, don’t we?
Often I have heard the adage, “You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with,” I forget who said it first.
If that is the case, maybe we should all be thinking more seriously about where our limited time goes.
Perhaps it should also be added that we need to spend time where we also have the opportunity to lift others up.
“Think about the people you most look up to versus the people you spend the most time with. If those lists are drastically different, fix that. Reach out to your role models and mentors and involve them in your journey. Cut out those people you spend a lot of time with who are not helping you on your path to greatness.”
–Lewis Howes, The School of Greatness
