The Power of Five
We look at the power of five this week…..
“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with” – Jim Rohn
Since I have tested and confirmed the truth in these statement, I thought it will be great to share it with you.
Here is one thing that I have always done.. I find a very lofty goal, very clear in my mind and properly documented with dates attached to it, but I never bothered about the impact of the people I hang out with and the environment on the goals.. Guess what, I always failed because, success requires adequate relevant preparation.
The people you choose to be around you(or in your team) will determine whether you succeed or fail.
I am sure you know about setting goals but who are your friends? Who do you hand around? Who is in your “FIVE”?
The power of five applies to your business, life and relationships and in fact everything you can think of that is important to you.
If you want to succeed in business, you better find FIVE people who already have the success you want in business. Do whatever it takes to get close to them. Get their books and audio programmes.. Check out their YouTube videos. you will be amazed at how your results will change.
Do the same for your relationships. Be sure to make conscious choices of who makes your top five, if you wish to have great relationships.. If you hang around people who have no regard for relationships, no matter how strong you are; you will become one of them.
In life, also do the same. Choose your top FIVE carefully, because you will become the average of your top FIVE.
If you want to stay fit, are your top five fit (or at least plan to be fit?). If you want to grow spiritually, does your top five want the same? The list goes on and on… It’s worth giving a good thought; if your goals will be achieved.
Remember, this will mean re-shuffling who your closest friends and associates are.. You will lose some friends and gain some, but let your goal guide you. Since we all wish to succeed, I believe the sacrifice is well worth it. Your success is worth the sacrifice!!
So as we kick off the new week; please join me and do one thing…. Re-shuffle and deliberately choose your top FIVE in the all areas of interest and you will be amazed at the results.
Here is another quote that will help…….
“As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another” – The Holy Bible
Your top FIVE will do one of the following two things; increase OR decrease you. There is no neutral point here, it’s either positive OR negative. If the saying that; “one bad apple spoils the bunch is true, what is your fate when there 5 bad apples in your team? Think about this..
To your success
