Who you spend time with is too important to be left to chance.
To put the power of association to work for you, you must first recognize that you are in control of, and solely responsible for, choosing the people you spend time with.
THE PEOPLE YOU ASSOCIATE WITH AFFECT YOUR THINKING.
The people you spend time with have a dramatic impact on your thinking. If the people around you are positive, you tend to be more positive. If they are negative, you'll tend to fall into slumps with them.
Since your thinking affects your actions, and your actions, affect your results, it is critical that you guard your thinking.
THE PEOPLE YOU ASSOCIATE WITH AFFECT YOUR HABITS.
The habits of the people you choose to spend the most time with will rub off on you. If you choose to spend time with people who are goal-focused and driven to succeed at what they do, you will soon emulate similar habits.
"You're the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with" and those 5 people are either pulling you up or dragging you down".
THE PEOPLE YOU ASSOCIATE WITH AFFECT YOUR RESULTS.
The “Power of Association” is not automatic -- it's intentional.
You must be willing to make conscious choices to associate with those who will enrich your life and support your goals.
It’s not easy and there is no magic button that will make everything happen without hard work and sacrifice on your part.
The power to change your life, your business, your relationships and your world is in your control.
The action required to bring about that change must initiate from you.
And you can make that decision right now.
