You are the average of the five people you associate with the most. Not my quote, but who are your five people? Are they ambitious? Do they challenge you? Do they want to see you grow? If not, there might be some changing to do. You are at a significant disadvantage if the people around you are not lifting you up. We all need friends. But the right ones will propel us. The wrong ones will stagnate us. Where do you want to go? Who do you want to be? And who will be there to witness it?
