Who do you spend the most time with?

Who are you spending time with

There’s a quote by Jim Rohn, “You are the average of the 5 people you spend most of your time with”.  This is something successful people know and they are very particular about who they spend their time with.

I thought a lot about that quote recently with all aspects of life…
People want success and happiness relationally, financially, physically, mentally, and spiritually.

With that in mind, I’d like to throw some questions out for you to think about.

Are you frustrated with your health, fitness, the way you look and feel? Are the 5 people you spend the most time with helping you to be a fit, healthy person?

What about how you view the world? Do you find yourself irritated with people, life and the world in general? Do you find yourself complaining about anything and everything? What about the 5 people you spend the most time with?

Are you living your life with passion and purpose or just sleep walking your way through the daily grind day in and day out? What about the 5 people you spend the most time with?

I want you to take a moment, quiet your mind from all the noise, dig deep inside yourself and ask yourself, what do I want from my life and are the 5 people I spend the most time with a reflection of the person I want to BE.

If the answer to that question is NO, start looking for people who reflect each aspect of the person you want to BE.

Another question you may want to ask yourself is, do you like your own company? Some people can’t stand to be alone and would rather engage with people who aren’t a true reflection of who they want to be, just to feel like they “belong”, rather than be alone.

When it comes to relationships, we are greatly influenced — whether we like it or not — by those closest to us. It affects our way of thinking, our self-esteem, and our decisions.

I want to be a highly successful entrepreneur. Therefore I follow and allow myself to be influenced by those who have achieved the level of success I aspire to.

I choose to live life with passion and purpose in a way where I don’t live the daily grind. I choose to follow those who have the same mindset.

I want you to think about your health, fitness and weight loss goals.  Do you find yourself constantly struggling with your fitness and being consistent with your workout?

In my book, Transformation Over 40, there is a chapter called Friendly Fire” and it has a lot to do with how those closest to you can sabotage your efforts to become more fit and healthy.

That’s something you need to get in tune with.  So whether you think your friends and family may not affect and influence your desire to look better and feel better, and are supportive of your efforts, think again.  They also affect your behavior, the choices you make and the action you take.

Subconsciously they don’t want you to change.  They’re used to you being a certain way.  And so, every time you go out with them and you try to make better, more nutritious food choices, they’ll talk you into having the greasy burger and fries with them.

You’ll hear them say things like “C’mon.  You can start your diet another day.  Enjoy yourself.  It’s not like you’re going to wake up 100 pounds heavier tomorrow”.

I dive deep into this stuff in Transformation Over 40 and teach you how to overcome this without alienating your friends and family.  You’ll also learn how to master The Success Mindset which applies to just about any aspect of your life.

I’ve been through this myself and have coached my clients about this over the years.  I promise you… it’s quite an eye opener and this is stuff no one talks about.

Again… ask yourself this question.

Who is the person I want to BE?

And more importantly, are the people you spend the most time with a reflection of the person you truly are and who you want to BE.
