"You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with" Jim Rohn
This famous saying by a motivational speaker is something I have been wondering about lately. Our self-esteem, our way of thinking, the decisions we make, all are influenced by those around us, according to this way of thinking. How successful you are in your personal and professional life is determined by the people you spend the most time with. It doesn't matter how smart you are, how skilled, where you were born, or the family you came from if you want to be successful. What matters is the people who you are surrounded by. So, as I said, I have been thinking about this quote. I know that as a parent I want my kids to surround themselves with people that are going to be good influences. I prefer to be around positive people because I feel more positive after being around them. So, is it true that by choosing who you spend your time with, you can shape your future? What do you think about this quote? Do you try to surround yourself with people you want to be like?
