You become who you hang around with!

June 11th, 2007 | No Comments |

I want you to do something really quick. Grab a pen and paper, add the total income of your friends and divide that by the amount of friends to find the average. Whatever that number reads, is probably close to what you are making right now or will make in the future…….unless something changes.┬áThis is pretty much a guarantee! Now, I am not saying that you have to ditch your friends and go get new, richer friends to become rich. All I am saying is that whoever it is that you choose to hang out with, you become like. You become who you associate with, mastermind with, and spend time with.

Jim Rohn speaks of why kids should have to pay tax on the things they buy. Give a kid a dollar and he has to give 7 pennies to every dollar that he spends for taxes. They have to learn at some point, right? I mean, that is how we can sleep peacefully at night. We pay 7 pennies so that the Military can stay up at night while we sleep comfortable in our beds. I will gladly pay 7 pennies for that! Anyway, instead of spending the whole dollar, he would counsel the kid to save some and not spend it all. The kid then asks “why.” That is when you take the kid to the other side of town and show him the difference between how those who spend the whole dollar live and the ones who save part of the dollar. Big difference!

As you hang around people who you admire, respect, and want to be like….you gradually start acting, speaking, and becoming like them. You pick up the way they speak and adapt their way of thinking. If they drive a Hummer but you are still stuck in a Geo Metro Convertible, then you might benefit a little from haninging out with them. Learn their secrets to success and tap in to their knowledge. Find out how they did it.

In order to become successful and wealthy, you need only a few things. You need an opportunity, the ambition to become wealthy, and a teacher or mentor. Most of you already live in the land of opportunity, America. People fight to get into this country, not out. Opportunity is already here. You just have to see it! Hang around those who do!
