Circle of 5

Your circle of 5 – the 5 people that you associate with the most have a powerful and subtle influence over you. Your associations don’t shove you in a direction, but rather like floating in an inner tube in the ocean, you drift towards the same behaviors they have. This group determines as much as 95% of your sucess or failure in life according to Dr. David McClelland of Harvard. They end up determining what we say, how we think, our attitudes, even how we dress – and for most of us we aren’t even aware of it happening. That being said, what are the attitudes, health, and behaviors of the 5 people that you associate most with? Then ask yourself is this who I want to be? Your relationships can nuture you or keep you stuck. Evaluate and shift your life starting today.
