Surround Yourself With the Right People

A group of people reading books and taking notes at a desk.

Surround yourself with the people who exhibit the behavior you want to adopt yourself.

If you’re trying to quit smoking, don’t hang out with smokers.

If you want to increase your productivity, don’t spend time with slackers.

If you want to become a writer, don’t listen to people who despise books.

If you want to make a difference, don’t follow people who spend their days in front of the TV.

Your environment matters; people around you can help you adopt better habits and even break the bad ones. Surround yourself with the right people. Professionally and personally.
