Who do you hang around with?

This can be the first step if you want to change something in your life. You have to think about your energy, your focus, your attention. So, start with your network. Who are the people you use to hang around with? Who are the people who influence you? What type of inspiration, motivation, energy can you get from the people you spend your time? Jim Rohn, the man I've chosen to be my mentor, explains this in a cristal clear way:
«1. Disassociation There are some people you might need to break away from completely—these are negative, toxic people who infect you with their bad attitude. It’s difficult to ignore someone and their negative influences but doing so will put YOU in control of deciding the quality of life you want to have. Then surround yourself with the people who represent and support that vision.

2. Limited Associations There are some people who you can spend three hours with, but not three days. Others you can spend three minutes with, but not three hours. Decide how much you can “afford” to be influenced, based on how those people represent themselves.

3. Expanded Associations Whatever area of your life you want to see improvement in, find someone who represents the success you want, the parenting skills you want, the relationship you want, the lifestyle you want, and spend more time with those people. Join organizations, clubs, businesses and health clubs where these people are and make friends. Decide who of your friends are the best influences and make more time for them; it’s an investment of time that will prove profitable.»

Beautiful, all words and work of this man, Jim Rohn.
