Did you know you are the five people you hang around?
One of the most important factors in living a better life is the people around us, and what they bring into our lives. The people we surround ourselves with have a considerable influence on our behavior, attitudes, and results. It’s like you are what you eat, so who you are around — what they’ve got you thinking, saying, doing, and becoming — sets the course of your life.
In the words of motivational speaker Jim Rohn:
“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”
My five people; although to be honest, I’m lucky to have more than 5.
My husband because, duh, I’m literally with him 24/7, and I married him.
My best friends, I’m lucky to have many! We met through her husband, and we talk every day, especially in different states. She’s the ying to my yang.
My BFF from high school isn’t in contact as much, but we get snippets because busy life with kids will take up a lot of your time. We have seen each other through many milestones, good and bad!
The one I met through a boy (no, we did not both date him, he was my friend, and she dated him). The moment we met, we became fast friends and have been going strong since 2007.
It’s a 2 for 1; these two come in a package; we become friends through work during my first round in LA, and became even closer in my second round; funny enough, we all moved in 2021 and are now in 3 separate cities, but we make time for video calls at least once a month.
So who are the impactful five in your life? Are you showing up for them when they need it most, remembering their significant life milestones like birthdays, anniversaries, sympathy dates, kid(s) birthdays, etc.?
‼️ If you don’t remember dates well, use technology to your advantage. A great and quick way to remember is to add these to your calendar and repeat them annually. Set up reminders a week ahead, so it gives you time to send a card or a gift, and for the day of the event to help you remember to reach out! Taking a moment to do this will last for many years to come!
How easy is that?
Until next week,
