Yes, this makes perfect sense. Why would you want to do otherwise? I just came across a blog post written by a passionate couple (and admirers of the human spirit) about the habits of highly successful people of which this was one of them. Marc and Angel Chernoff enjoy sharing inspirational advice and practical tips for life on their popular personal development blog, “Marc and Angel Hack Life.” Currently the site contains over 600 articles on happiness, productivity, emotional intelligence, relationships, and general self-improvement, and has attracted over 100 million page views since its inception in 2006. This goes to show that many people are still searching
not me of coursefor ways to increase their personal overall significance in life. This is taken from their blog and I think we can all agree:
You are the average of the people you spend the most time with. And that’s why it’s not always where you are in life, but who you have by your side that matters most. Some people drain you and others provide soul food. So be sure to get in the company of those who feed your spirit, and give the gift of your absence to those who do not appreciate your presence. There’s no need to rush into a relationship you are unsure of, or socialize with those who hold you back.
Spend more time with nice people who are smart, driven and open-minded about personal growth and opportunity. Use websites like “meetup.com” to search for local community groups of people with similar passions and goals. These people are out there – I know because I see they even have a happy hour meetup which would be perfect for me!
But seriously, the bottom line is that relationships should help you, not hurt you. Surround yourself with people who reflect the person you want to be. Choose friends who you are proud to know, people you admire, people who care about you and respect you – people who make your day a little brighter simply by being in it. Life is too short to spend time with people who suck the energy and hope out of you.
This is discussed in more detail in the “relationships “chapter of a book they wrote entitled: 1,000 Little Things Happy, Successful People Do Differently.
Hope you have a nice and relaxing weekend. As for me, I’m trying to be more successful so later on I’ll be off to meet some happy people over happy hour. Cheers!
As in sports, if you want to improve your game play with people who are better than you.
