#116 – You Are The Average Of The Five People You Most Associate With.


The origin for writing this post dates back to several months from today. I was attending this Behavioral and Value Creation Sessions organized by our company and one of those sessions had this amazing facilitator who was giving speech on law of attraction. He started his session with the simple statement that even if we equally distributed all the wealth in this Universe , after few days the money would once again reach to the top billionaires in the world. He further went on to explain why successful people are always abundant. Be it in terms of health or wealth, they are always contended.

What I understood after the session was that

“You are the average of the five people you most associate with”

Even after reading the above quote from many online sources, we still choose to hang around with losers each time and end up becoming one. This doesn’t mean that you have to avoid all the unsuccessful people in this world and bask in the glory of only successful friends.

What I meant was

“You have to surround yourself with a positive circle of friends”.

Unfortunately, life doesn’t give the perfect set of people for us always. Life is fucking unpredictable. Anything can happen at any time. Any person can enter in your life anytime and make or break you. But what stays constant is the inner circle of friends/close-set of people whom you always hang around with, no matter what. This close-set of people should always be either people who push you towards success or people who desperately want you to fail. Because either of the categories will motivate you to work hard and make it big.

If you aspire to become a  good writer, then surround yourself with the best writers/publishing agents in the Industry.

If you aim to be a good basketball player, then hang around with the titans in the game.

If you want to invest more time on yourself, then stop looking fucking lost and start doing what your heart wants you to do.

It is very simple. Whatever  you want to achieve, surround yourself with like minded individuals. They will push you towards accomplishing mastery in that field.

Your boyfriend/girl friend may leave. Your boss may fire you up. Your spouse may just walk out of the relationship. What stays forever with you is this small inner circle which genuinely understands your positives and negatives. Never allow them to go away from you. And also if you don’t have the right set of people in your circle, its time to say bye and find your tribe.

Be careful to choose whom you vibe with. It is perfectly fine to be alone than in bad company. Life is too short to be around people who are genuinely not good enough for you.
