Surround Yourself With Positive People
Here are some thoughts by Shawn Lim regarding this habit
Jim Rohn was right when he famously said:
“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”
We simply become like the people we surround ourselves with most of the time.
Think about it, if you want to start saving by cutting down your expenses, but if you mix with people who are not thrifty and who simply spend on things, highly likely, you will not reach your goal.
For instance, when you decided to cut down your expenses on coffees, and when you go out with a bunch of friends, and all of them wanted to go to Starbucks for a drink and a cake, what will you do?
Of course, you follow. And will you just sit in Starbucks and ordered nothing? Will you just sit there watching your friends eating and drinking and all you do is talking to them?
Not likely. Chances are, you’re going to buy yourself a cup of coffee too. So that you look “fit in”, right?
Please understand that this is just an example of how the people you surround with can influence your thinking and decision.
What if everyone you surround yourself with is using the latest smartphone? What if they are all smokers?
Can you see how this can influence and impact your life?
Therefore, if you want to be successful and always stay positive, surround yourself with people who are positive and successful.
