The lone wolf dies, but the pack survives

We tend to adopt habits that are praised and approved of by our culture because we have a strong desire to fit in and belong to the tribe.

We tend to imitiate the habits of:

  1. The close (friends and familiy)
  2. The many (the tribe)
  3. The powerful (those with status and prestige)

Surround yourself with people who have the habits you want to have yourself. You'll rise together.

Even better if you already have something in common with the group. Nothing sustains motivation better than belonging to the tribe.
