You are the average of the five people
You spend the most time with.
Imagine you are part of an experiment where you must relinquish your thoughts and your decision-making process to someone in your life for a full month.
And the goal is that after a month you must be closer to your goal than before the month started.
Now go through every person you associate with in your life and ask yourself,
“Would I trust that responsibility to anyone?”
If your answer is no, then you got some cleaning house to do.
If the answer is yes, that’s your inner circle.
That’s your alliance.
Those are the people you keep in your life.
You might say this experiment may seem far-fetched, that you will never allow anyone in your life to 100% think for you or to make all decisions for you.
I beg to differ.
There will be a time in your life when you will not be at your best, and you will have to rely on those closest to you for guidance.
They will influence you.
For good or for bad.
Choose wisely who you associate with as one day they may be the one asked to take life’s wheel for you.
