I heard a quote I want to share with you. Here it is.
“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”
So what does that say about you? I know that I began to think about the people who influence me. I also thought about how my average may fluctuate depending on whom I am with. The opposite is true, hopefully the people around me aren’t negatively affected by my influence. So what can we do? Allow me to offer two suggestions.
1. Associate with people who encourage you to grow.
2. Strive to be the person that encourages others to grow.
Do you have other suggestions? Maybe you look at this differently. I welcome your comments.
