Who we spend our time with greatly affects who we become. They affect us mentally, emotionally, and physically.
Jim Rohn spoke nothing but the truth when he stated “you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” It is extremely evident in the most successful people in the world. The world’s best businessmen spend most of their time with other businessmen. The world’s best scientists spend most of their time with other scientists. The world’s best athletes spend most of their time with other athletes.
When we choose our inner circle of people we need to choose wisely because they have a greater effect on us than we think. When we spend time with other people often we become more like them. They rub off on us and we all become more alike.
If we have an idea of the person we want to become that is who we need to be spending the majority of our time with. For example, if you want to become a successful business person try investing in relationships with people who are already successful in that field and just from being around them you will learn how to be more business-minded.
Surrounding ourselves with fools will only turn us into fools. Surrounding ourselves with people who inspire us and elevate us to our greatest potential is golden. If we invest in the right inner circles we can be free to grow with them and develop into whoever we want to be.
