I have a question for you…
“Who do you hang out with and are they a good influence on you?”
Question number 2: “Are you a good influence on those you hang out with?”
Watch this video now to find out why I’m asking…
(Watch this video directly in YouTube here).
Or read on if you don’t like videos…
Now the reason I ask this is that, statistics show that a person takes on the qualities that are the average of the 5 people that they associate with the most.
So if you tend to spend a lot of time associating with people who are always complaining, perhaps they’ve never got enough money, everyone around them has problems and business isn’t so good, and the kids are always misbehaving and their husband’s driving them crazy – or wife’s driving them crazy…
Chances are, you’re going to start taking on their qualities too, if you haven’t already.
But if you’re hanging out with people who are successful, people who are happy and who are making a difference in this world and are more positive, chances are you’re going to be like that as well.
Okay? So just take some time when you finish watching this video to think about that.
Think about the 5 people you hang out with the most and whether or not they have similar traits and whether you’re picking up those traits as well.
If you don’t like what you come up with maybe it’s time to start thinking about who
you hang out with.
I don’t mean that you need to ditch all those people – especially not if they’re lifetime friends or family members or colleagues or even staff.
But it does indicate that maybe it would be good for you to start hanging out with some different people as well and spending more time, wherever possible, with those people with the qualities that you see as being good and that you would like to have. Or that you think you do have in yourself, okay?
It’s definitely something that I think is worthwhile.
Go and do that now. Think about the 5 people you spend the most time with and whether or not you need to make some changes to the type of people that you’re hanging out with
