You become who you hang around.
Think about that for a few minutes. What are the characteristics of people you interact with on a daily basis, those who you spend time with or are closest to. Do they embody things you aspire to be like? If not, be careful! Perhaps you are the one influencing them. But, more likely, it is the other way around. Be sure to choose to be around people who have the self discipline, integrity, motives and other characteristics you seek to improve in yourself. Every day you are educating your subconscious mind – it doesn’t judge the information being put into it. It just accepts it. One of my favorite books, Think and Grow Rich by Napolean Hill is a great resource for helping to recognize the power of the influence of others and how to make it a resource for growth.
