Check Your Influences
Have you ever had a really great conversation with someone? They’re encouraging and nice and you walk away feeling like you could tackle the world? It’s awesome, right? Ever had the opposite conversation? You get around someone and you walk away feeling like the world is terrible and you’re all doomed? People can have that effect on you. We, like it or not, slowly become more and more like the people we are around.
If you truly want to shake up your life and find your way out of your comfort zone, you need to be around people who think the same way. This doesn’t mean dropping everyone else in your life, it simply means making sure you have influences that are pushing you in the direction you wish to go. Make sure that the people you encounter and share your life with are people that help you be the person you want to be.
