“You become what you think about.” – Earl Nightingale
The people you hang around with on a constant basis influences some, if not all, of what you do. It’s human nature to do so.
Let me Explain.
For some reason, we humans crave attention. Whether it be big or small, as long as we have attention, we get off on it.
Thinking about it now, it’s actually pretty strange.
Us humans LOVE to be LOVED. It’s as simple as that. Being Loved is what we all crave for and it’s great.
We are social creatures who crave Contact and Love. Just like how babies who are not held or given any attention die, people go insane when kept in solitary confinement. That’s why it’s such an extreme form of punishment in prison.
Our drive to want to be Loved is sooooo strong, when not in the right groups, we can do stupid things just to fit in.
This “rule” applies to everyone. People follow trends so they can be accepted by society, they buy the latest fashions, the latest tech to fit in with the “in” crowd and even act the same so they’d feel accepted.
But Imagine if we could take that knowledge and apply it to productive and positive means.
What if I told you that by applying this simple fact about human nature, in the right way, you could dramatically change your whole life?
You start becoming the people you’re around!
You start speaking like them, laughing like them, you start walking and even scratching yourself like them!
It's much like being in Love. When you’re in Love you start picking up your partner’s way of speaking, you start copying their words, you even start seeing the way they see things too!
When you start surrounding yourself with people who have what you want, you’ll eventually and inevitably get whatever you want.
To change your life, that’s exactly what you have to do.
People who want to change the world eventually understand, if they don’t already do, they can’t change it all by themselves; especially in this era of interconnectivity.
That’s why people create masterminds.
For those who don’t know, a mastermind is:
a small group that you meet with for the purpose of reinforcing growth and success while offering support to one another; a group that has been identified and set aside to concentrate specifically on growth and manifesting success in the following areas; finances, spirituality, relationships,
Or in other words, people you meet with who help each other reach common goals in any areas of their lives. (An Innercircle)
The Most successful people in the world have mastermind groups. They are all apart of some sort of society that are concentrated on common goals and help each other achieve them.
The most powerful people in the world understand this knowledge and now you do.
Surround yourself with the masters and those who want to be masters and you’ll become a master.
Make the only crowd you need to fit into be the one that will drive you to your ultimate goals. Make it to where you have no choice but to fit in and your basic nature to be Loved and accepted will do all of the work.
Make a Mastermind or Join one! That's one of the best and most powerful ways to achieve your goals.
