Who do you spend the most time with? Who are your conversations with on and offline most of the day? If you haven’t thought much about it, then I suggest you start to think about it because your future depends on it.
Jim Rohn said we are the average of the five people we spent he most time with. He could tell our wealth, health, and quality of our relationships just be knowing more about those five people.
We don’t pay much attention to who we spend the most time with. Sometimes it’s not our choice, but sometimes we do have a choice. Imagine hanging out with co-workers after work and everyone is talking about how much they hate their job, or how stupid the boss was today. You’re going to join in on the conversation so you won’t be left out of the group.
How will you feel afterwards? You’re going to remember how much you hate your job, how your life sucks, how you have these big dreams, but haven’t done anything with them. It’s one negative thought after another.
If you truly want to be a better version of yourself and reach those big dreams you have, you can’t be spending time with people who don’t share the same dreams as you.
Like I share to on my newsletter, you can’t be an eagle if you always hang out with chickens. Soon enough you’ll believe that you’re just a chicken.
In episode 21, I talk about the importance of choosing who you spend time with. I give advice on how to handle people you can’t remove from your life like a family member or relative.
