You must have heard it said that “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” – Jim Rohn
Have you surrounded yourself with the wrong people?
Don’t ignore this.
Today I read a Bible verse.
Proverbs 13:20 KJV – “He that walketh with wise [men] shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.”
The company you keep will help determine what you achieve.
Do you doubt it?
Well, let me explain how it works.
People around you share their beliefs through their words.
These words become your external influence.
They either reinforce or interrupt your beliefs.
When you take account of the people around you, do they give a positive or negative influence?
Are they leading you to more wisdom or destruction?
The truth is we choose who these people are.
You decide with whom you spend your time.
It is why it is important to choose a support system that helps you to become wise.
Who are the people you spend your most time?
How would your life be different if you had a stronger, more positive and nurturing community?
