If You Want To See A Hint Of Your Future…

I found this picture on Tim Mushey’s blog and it reminded me of a quote by Tony Robbins which says:

“People’s lives are a direct reflection of the expectations of their peer group.”

When I first heard this it really hit home to me as it’s similar to Seth Godin‘s philosophy of Tribes.  Basically, if you want to change your behaviour, you should also consider changing the people who you spend time with.

Kind of like when you start going to the gym and get friendly with some other people who are fit and working out regularly.  Just spending time with these people is usually enough to motivate you to think and act differently.

Or when your child starts a new school and suddenly all your chat is about education, and school committees and other parent related topics.

If you want to be successful in business, then actively seek out a new group of people to spend time with.  

People who inspire and motivate you.  People who make you raise your personal bar of success.

It is these people who will help you to make the mental shift that is necessary, to go the extra mile.

  2. I totally agree. To put it at a very simple level, people tend to copy or fit in with the group your they are in. Some ladies end up emulating hair style or colour, some ladies wear more make up or less, some are more outspoken or not. Putting yourself in a group that fits your mental picture of what you want to be like is a great start to improvement. As a fitness trainer, if you want to get fit, surround yourself with people who exercise and like it! Great blog Kim…
