I received a key to success from Jack Canfield this week. Not just financial success, although it definitely does apply. It is a key to success in any area of your life that you are looking for more success.
You are the average of the five people that you spend the most time with.
For me, one of things that I want to do is lose some weight. Well, the people I talk to the most at work are very much overweight, not exactly the right people to help reinforce the right habits. I also want more success with my own businesses, and again, the people that I spend the most time with are complacent, happy to complain about being poor without doing anything to change it.
Looks like I need new friends. We have a tendency to pick up the habits and attitudes of the people that we spend our time with, so we need to spend time with the people that have the habits and attitudes that we want to build.
Take a look at your life. What are the areas that you are not receiving the success that you want then look at the people you spend the most time with. Do they embody the success you are looking for? Probably not. Where can you find the people that you should spend the more time with?
Another concept that this brings to mind is a mastermind group. They are a great way to surround yourself with people who are headed in the same direction as you want to go who will support and encourage you.
Leave me a comment. If you are someone who is looking to increase your success in business and/or wellness then I would love to talk with you.
Anyone up for a mastermind?
You probably know Jack Canfield as the co-creator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul book series. Have you read The Success Principles yet?
