This is video 3 in the Strong Body–Strong Mind series (We suggest you start at video 1)
When it comes to your “inner circle” of acquaintances, Jim Rohn hit the “nail on the head” when he said (see photo),
This means, that the people you most frequently interact with (your inner circle) have a major impact on not only your current fitness/health goals but they also have a big influence on your overall happiness.
Hold on!!! Read that again!
“…have a big influence on your overall happiness”
Unfortunately this is true! The people in your inner circle have the power too either lift you up or brake you down…
If this scares you a little, maybe it should, because the ramifications of your inner circle are just too big to ignore. So if have any aspirations of achieving greatness you need to take a long hard look at your 5 to 10 closest inner circle members and:
- Get rid of the people who bring you down (let’s call them haters),
- Surround yourself with people who build you up!
This is a critical, however too many people fail to get past this particular step.
Why? Because “haters” are usually people we have known for a long time such as; co-workers, family members (even your spouse), and long time friends. And because of this, it is not always easy to remove these people from our lives.
However, the rule remains the same, “you are the average…” so while it may not be easy to remove certain people from your life, we always have the option to add people!
Yes, by adding positive people to your personal network you are creating your own support network, surrounding yourself with people who motivate and inspire! What exactly is a support network? Well it is a group of like-minded individuals, that will up lift you, cheer you on, and will celebrate your accomplishments.
When it comes to health and fitness goals, the best place to find your support network is at your gym. If your gym doesn’t have a support network you can join mine. We have two opportunities, you can join the 21-day habit hack, or the 10-week challenge.
