“You’ll be the same today five years from now, except for the people you meet and the books you read.” Charlie “Tremendous” Jones
In 1987 I was introduced to the books, “Think and Grow Rich”, “The Magic of Thinking Big”, and “How to Win Friends and Influence People.” These books had a tremendous influence on my life as they set the core beliefs that I live by. If these books are not in your library, do yourself a favor and get them today!
Think about the people in your life. If you were to rate the five people with whom you spend the most time, how many of them are positive influencers and how many of them bring you down? Make a conscious choice to start spending more time with people who make you feel better about yourself. Minimize your precious time with discouragers.
Take a minute today and write down the names of your top five. Put a plus sign by your encouragers and a minus sign by your discouragers. Surprised? What are you going to do about it?
