You Are The Sum Of Your Five Closest People

The Five People You Spend Time With Drive Your Success

Your success equals the sum of your friends.

If you are looking for ways to be successful in your weight loss journey (and in life, in general), you have certainly come to the right place! 

Did you know that you are the sum of the five closest people in your life?

The people surrounding you directly impact your success in every area of life. That includes your pursuit of losing weight.

The people you spend the most time with shape who you are. You are essentially the average of those five people. 

They determine what topics you think and talk about. They determine how you view life. And, they determine how you handle success or failure. They influence your self-esteem. Also, whether you are optimistic or pessimistic about the world around you. 

Surrounding yourself with positive friends and family is honestly the key to thriving. 

Evaluate Your Success. Evaluate Your Circle

Because you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with, it is very important to evaluate them. It is important to evaluate those who surround you. It is important to choose people who will inspire, support, and uplift you throughout the course of your life.

You are the sum of your five closest friends, so why on earth would you choose anyone less than stellar to be in your inner circle? It can plainly be stated that you ARE your friends. 

In remembering that you are the average of the five closest people in your life, you might feel guilty if you realize you need to distance yourself from that negative friend (or even family member) who encourages you to eat junk food or skip the gym when they do. 

DON’T feel guilty. This is your life and you absolutely deserve to be surrounded by people who love you and believe in the highest version of yourself that you wish to become. 

Increase Your Success. Eliminate The Negativity

You know the old saying that “misery loves company,” right? If someone is miserable in their own skin and doesn’t have the desire or strength to make a change, why would you choose to let that person influence your health and weight loss journey? 

Stop and think about a person in your life that you know isn’t helping you achieve your goals. Who is it and how much time are you putting into that relationship? 

As hard as it may be, start putting less time into that relationship by saying “no thank you” to invitations or phone calls from them. Assessing who you need to start distancing yourself from is the first step to changing your circle of 5 friends. 

Find Your Success. Focus On The Positive

Now for the fun part  – putting energy into a relationship that helps you achieve your goals. 

Think about a person in your life who you feel good about being around. They make you smile and feel good about who you are and the choices you are making. 

For your success, give them a call! Set up time to do something together. Watch as that relationship starts to grow. Relationships are like plants – the ones we water grow. 

You might be thinking that you don’t have somebody in your life that you want to create a stronger relationship with. 

That’s OK. I have many “friends” that are not actually my friends, but the time I spend with them is incredibly valuable. 

I know you’re thinking “how does that work?”  Let me tell you – podcasts, books, or anything you can see or listen to can become a “friend.”  

I listen to books and podcasts in the car as I drive all the time. It is like somebody speaking positivity into my life and being the friend I need. Be careful of what you choose – those voices will become one of your 5 closest people.
