Who you choose to hang around will have a massive impact on where you end up.
Subconsciously, you are absorbing on other people’s ideas and beliefs when you are spending a lot of time with them. If you are constantly around people who are negative, bitter, miserable and do nothing with their lives, that is the road you will also take. It’ll become your normal.
If, however, you change this and decide to surround yourself with people who are following their passions, making awesome things happen, who are supportive, positive and happy, you are highly likely to go the same way.
Every day when you wake up, you have a choice. Are you hanging around with the people who are draining you of your energy? Or will you be brave, say enough is enough and surround yourself with people who are on the same mission as you? People who are striving to reach their goals, who are focused and determined. The people who are going to encourage you to keep levelling up and not the ones who want to keep you down in fear of you drifting apart.
Here’s some truth.
As you work on yourself, as you start hitting your goals, as you become a better person you will drift away from some of the people who remain stagnant. I’m talking about the people who keep encouraging you to go back to old habits that are harming you, the people who tell you that you’re boring when you say you don’t want to get shit faced tonight because you want to stay focused on your goal, the people who laugh and tell you “It’s never going to work” the people who tell you that you’re not the same any more, you’ve changed…
Well you can choose to revert back to your old ways, to fit in with the crowd, to please everyone else while deep inside you are kicking yourself because you know that you were born for more than this… Or you can stand up for yourself and say “YOU’RE RIGHT. I’M NOT THE SAME ANY MORE. I HAVE CHANGED!” and walk away with your head held high knowing that you are on a better road now.
