We become like the people with whom we surround ourselves.
We are social creatures and can be influenced. We are more easily influenced than we think. I am.
Who do you want to be? Do you have dreams? Aspire to something greater?
You can achieve it.
Whatever it is, it will require pursuit.
Find the people you want to be like at work, church, gym, pub. They are there an ice-breaking moment away. Say “hi,” and ask them how their day is going. It’s easier than it feels.
And after you’ve met them, pursue them. Ask them out for a coffee, lunch, drinks. Not all will want to be friends, but some will.
Spend time with them. Build a relationship with them. Don’t use them or see them as a means to get what you want, but rather ask them for their stories and listen. And share yours.
And, you will form new habits, make new friends, receive new possibilities. You will change.
And before you know it, you will realize your dreams.
