It's your life. Have you ever heard that? I think we all have at some point. But let's make no mistake about the point being made here. The SUCCESS or FAILURE of your life and your life's experiences, whether in relationships, business, finances, family, etc. will be based on three things.
1 - The people you meet - whether positive or negative, successful or barely getting by, will impact your life one way or the other. Not only the people you meet, but more so the people you associate with will have a direct, sometimes powerful impact on your life. This may include your friends, your business associates, or maybe even a significant other or spouse. But make no mistake here, we tend to emulate the people we associate with. This can be a very good thing in your life or a very bad thing.
Did your mother ever tell you 'You better watch out who you were hanging out with?' I know my mom surely did. And wow, Moms are always right. If you have great people in your life that support you, and truly care for you, then I say congratulations. If you have people in your life that are holding you back, always in need, keeping you from your destiny, then I say love them from a distance. Stop the madness. Stop associating with those type people daily.
2 - The information we process - the information we process go hand in hand with #1 above, the people we associate with. But it also includes other information we process such as the books we read, the TV we watch, the music we listen to, the audio we take in, etc...
Have you ever heard the 'ole saying that "You are what you think you are?" I wonder where we get these thoughts? It's from the information you process. If you are not where you want to be in life, or with the person you want to be with, or have the job you would like to have, then take a look at what you are processing. Then CHANGE IT.
3 - The HABITS we have - We develop our habits differently. Some people let the world around them, their environment dictate their daily habits. They live their life somewhat with a 'VICTIM' mentality. Others develop their habits proactively.
Here's what I mean. For example, do you get up before work daily for a workout? If not, are you overweight? Do you eat the same foods knowing they are harmful to your body? Do you spend money on frivolous items you know you don't need and at the end of the month complain about a lack of money?
To some extent, we all do. However, if you want to have more, then you have to learn great habits to get more. You have to take control of your daily habits. DO IT NOW.
