There are influencers. These are people who you look to then there are the INFLUENCERS these are the people who help direct your life.
So many times we wonder why our life’s don’t go the direction we wanted them to go. I often ask the question of who are your influencers? They may say some well know name like Tony Robbins, or Wayne Dyer. Then I see their friends. These folks are often pessimistic or complaining about how someone is doing them wrong.
So many times we don’t see that the people who are real influencers are the ones closes to us. We feel like we are trapped because our friends are in the same boat and they like the status quo. These people that for your best interest shouldn’t try something because it is too hard, or you will look like an idiot because you failed.
Jim Rohn said it best you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with. The good news is you can change your life and make it easier to change by changing who you spend time with.
Yes the old friends will talk about how you have changed. They will talk about how you are or the same but they won’t be able to mention that it is for the better because hey will be pointing out their own short comings.
So watch this short video about how your five closest people reflect you.
I like being able to help people find their “why” and achieve the personal freedom they desire. Besides writing for Relaxed Male I also am a life coach. By helping men find the leader that is found in each and every one of us. I do this by encouraging men to get outdoors and find the balance they are missing. Realize that they need to be in contact with the outside as often as they can. It is not only good for them but for their families and relationships.
