This Simple Formula Will Tell You Exactly Who You Are

You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with. –Jim Rohn

Peer group is extremely important. Your lifestyle, your income, your weight, your interests . . . just about everything will be the average of the people you spend the most time with.


If you surround yourself with successful people who go after what they want and make a lot of money, you see how accessible it is. They are walking examples. If you hang around people who always complain that things aren’t working for them and that making money is hard, you too will find it hard, and will most likely not have the courage or work ethic to go after your dreams.

If you have friends who are in great relationships, you will probably be in one too, or at least you will be optimistic because you see living examples of it. If most of your friends are in bad relationships, communicate poorly, lie, and aren’t honest with themselves, you will probably be on that path as well, or cynical as to whether an amazing, healthy relationship even exists.

Who are the 5 people you spend the most time with? What do you like most about each of these individuals?

Who do you want to spend more time with?

    You are one of my five people (well imaginary/indirectly cuz I don’t know you). You are AMAZING!

    Full of life and positive BOLD energy. You have inspired me (sometime last year) to pick up my camera and take images of what I want/what I love. Your photos are more than just “professional work” they are inspirational images of life, a beautiful look into your soul, and willpower to dream, think, dance, smile, and sing!

    Thank you for sharing your story with your fans! As I approch 30, I will no longer fear it or be ashamed of things not accomplished, instead I will begin my own tale; the way I ALWAYS imagined it. Thank you for giving me a burst of energy to see things differently again!
