Do your friends have positive vibes? Do you have positive vibes? World renowned motivational speaker Jim Rohn said, “We are the average of the five people we spend the most time with.” Whether we realize it or not, we’re significantly influenced by our friends and it affects our decisions and way of thinking.Throughout my life, I’ve had both positive and negative friends. For me, the toughest part was weeding through the people who were right for me, and those who weren’t.
Here are a few things to ask yourself, if you’re having trouble determining what’s right for you.
Do I feel supported?
Am I happy when they’re around?
Do they make me feel like I can reach my goals?
Hopefully you answered yes to most of these questions, if so you’re in great shape. Remember that your definition of positive will be different from mine. Only you hold the key to finding the right friends for you.
