Upgrade the Company You Keep to Hit Your Goals FasterApr 20, 2017
You probably have heard the story of Roger Bannister, the English runner who, in 1954 achieved what everyone thought was impossible: running a mile in under 4 minutes.
For centuries, people thought this feat was beyond human ability. Yet, a mere two months after Bannister ran the sub-4 minute mile, two other runners did so. It's since been done many times.
Perhaps you have heard the saying, "You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with."
In both examples, an important truth is revealed.
The people we surround ourselves with strongly influence what we accomplish in life.
Who we hang out with is directly related to:
- how high we set our goals
- what we believe is possible
- how quickly we reach our goals
- how long and hard we work at something; i.e., our grit and resilience
- So please be very intentional.
Who you spend your time around and with matters greatly--especially in your career, but in your personal life as well.
