Over the weekend I was reading an article titled "Your Top 5 Success Strategies." The article was based on 6 successful sport minded peoples' top 5 success tips.
Todd Durkin's number one tip was this:
Surround yourself with great people. A coach once told me "If you want to be a great athlete, hang and train with great athletes; if you want tot be a great trainer, hang with great trainers; if you want to be wealthy, spend time with wealthy people."
I feel that carries into everyday life as well. If you want to eat healthier hang out with healthy eaters. If you want to exercise more hang out with happy exercising people!
I heard this statement a long time ago...
"You are who you hang with." Do you ever notice that if you are hanging with a bunch of friends and they order pizza, wings and beer, you find yourself eating it too? Or shopping with a friend. You don't want to spend too much money, but she is, so you inadvertently do too? Think about who you are hanging with, are they a positive influence? Or is she a "Debbie Downer?" Clean your friendship cupboards! Surround yourself with GREAT people! See the difference it makes in your life!!
