Time to Re-Evaluate

“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” – Jim Rohn

Take a look at the five people that you hang out with most…

What is their health like – Are they unhealthy or are they fit and knocking off new physical achievements constantly?

What about their careers – Are they dwindling in an unfulfilling job doing work they hate or are they excitedly telling you that they can’t wait for Monday because they are living their dream?

How about their mindset? Are they constantly looking for growth opportunities and pushing the boundaries or are they complaining about everything and everyone? Do they accept criticism as a place they can grow or are they quick to make excuses?

It is likely that the life they are living is the standard you are setting for yourself.

It may not even be in the words you speak, but in the way you (and your relationship circle) view and see the world.

If you have a burning goal that still hasn’t been achieved then continue reading….

Are you THRIVING and chipping away at the goal constantly or are you only just SURVIVING and falling off the wagon more times then you hop on?

Are the people you’re constantly around inspiring you and motivating to achieve that goal or do they unintentionally lead you astray?

There is a reason why success entrepreneurs are usually hanging around other successful entrepreneurs, because it pulls them higher to become better and take it to the next level.

You should never be looking down and fueling your ego because you appear to be above someone. Instead you should be looking up to someone you aspire to be like and chasing their tail. One of the greatest keys to success is to mirror someone who is already successful.

So, how are you going to take it to the next level?

Who are you going to surround yourself with and what are you going to be looking at for inspiration?

Is everything you do from this point forward going to be better than before?

Eat better every day, physically train better every day, find the positives in people and life every day?

If you have the burning desire to achieve something, it is time to take it to the next level. Don’t limit your potential by surrounding yourself only with those who allow you to remain inside your comfort zone – the magic doesn’t happen there!
