People are contagious. The people you spend the most time with infect you with their attitude, their ideas and their energy or lack of energy. Over time we become more and more like the people hang out with. That’s not always a good thing.
Take a good look at your inner circle of friends, your teammates, and think about whether or not they’re good for you. Are you a better version of yourself because of their influence? Do they move you closer to your goals or pull you away from them? Are they in your life because they need you or is it mutual?
You don’t have to keep the same friends just because you’ve always had them. Friendship is a privilege not an obligation. If you have people in your life that don’t fit your life, spend less time with them and start building a support system that adds to your success. Life’s too important to do anything else.
