"You're the average of the five people that you spend the most time with." Jim Rohn
Hang around with people who support you and push you and you will end up farther ahead than by hanging around with people who hold you back and tear you down. It sounds obvious. And I think that most people listening to this would agree.
But it's not always easy to do.
Either by choice or by life.
Sometimes we just don't put in the effort or want to deal with the pain of getting rid of the negative influences in our lives. And sometimes we can't easily get rid of the negative influences in our lives. Sometimes people in our family struggle or run into problems. Problems which require our support. So we can't abandon those people.
Regardless those people will have an effect on our lives.
And this idea is one of the many that I will be talking about today with Javan Bernakevitch as part of our continued look into the common, but hidden reality of us all.
