Instruments for living better

The most important tool at our disposal for living better  - other people.

The people we surround ourselves with are the biggest influence on our behavior, attitudes, and results.

“The people you habitually associate with, determine as much as 95 percent of your success or failure in life.”

“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”

Forge your own bubble

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.

Building your team

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.

Your Community Is Your Motivation

Working to build a better self almost always means working to build a better community or tribe with which you surround it.

The people with whom you surround yourself have a tremendous impact on your life. In several ways, they shape your thinking and become the reason for your motivation.

Herd Mentality of Positive Motivation

Positivity rubs itself in the same ways in a group, where individual thinking starts getting aligned with the kind of group it is in.

Example: An inactive or lethargic person will start to get more active if he is joining an active group for the morning jog, as the motivation and the energy will rub off on him.

Work On Yourself

Your work is a reflection of you. If you want something different: improve yourself.

If you're not getting the results you're looking for, stop looking for better strategies. Instead, look inside. Try to continuously improve yourself, by expanding your vision, skills, and abilities.

Put Yourself In Difficult Situations

You need to put yourself into positions that create immense pressure. The kind of pressure that will either make or break you. 

This is how you purge out your weakness and small-mindedness. It won't be pretty. But it will change you.
