Our lives are made up of conversations. The quality of the people with whom we speak every day will significantly impact the quality of our lives. Jim Rohn said, "we are the average of the five people we spend the most time with."
If we spend our time with negative or disruptive people, we lose our mojo. If we spend our time with people that are moving forward on the kinds of projects and relationships that we love, we move forward.
There is nothing more critical than taking control of the people with whom you surround yourself. We become them.
To the extent that you can control who you speak to on a daily basis, be intentional and vigilant surrounding yourself with the right people.
