Surround yourself with people you admire.

We become like the people that we choose to expose ourselves to. So you can accelerate your personal growth in whatever direction you desire by spending time with people who already are who you want to become.

Actively construct your social environment. Don’t let it depend on proximity or chance or on how it has always been, but consciously plan which opinions, attitudes and life-philosophies you do and do not allow to be in your life.

You can’t hang out with negative people and expect to have a positive life.

Audit your time
  • Look at your peers. Is this who you plan to become? 
  • Look at your Facebook feed.
  • Look at the blogs you read. Are they helpful or click-baitey?
  • Look at the games you play and how much time they suck out of your life.
  • Look at the pointless arguments you get into.

These influences are acting on you, consciously and otherwise.
