You’re the company you keep

Research shows you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. Who’s your top five? Who and what you’re around is who and what you’ll become.

Scientifically it’s the law of averages, basically the results of any given situation will be the average of all outcomes.

Simply put you’re the company you keep.

Take a group of people one is sad and mopey, one is anxious and worries about everything, one is angry and feels attacked, another has been traumatized and has some major issues they need to work through , and one’s unmotivated and lacks ambition, do you think this group of people will be aw inspiring, uplifting or motivating or do you think they will pull you down to their level?

Same is true if they where motivated, driven, positive, humble, and confident they would lift you up to their level. You are the company you keep.

If you want to live a healthy lifestyle hang out with someone that lives a healthy lifestyle, that eats right, stays away from drugs and alcohol and works out regularly. You’ll start taking steps to live healthier.

If you want to be more positive and uplifting, hang out with someone positive and uplifting.

If you want to become a better communicator hang out with someone that communicates well.

If you want to be better in business hang out with someone who’s thriving in their business.

If you want change, you first must change. Take a look around, who is in your corner, what do you put your energy into, what kind of environment are you in. If it’s toxic, doom and gloom, negative, dark, that’s who and what you’ll become.

You are the company you keep.

You are the gatekeeper to your own soul, be mindful who you give access to, and who you let in.
