Show Notes:

Do you want to live your best life? If not, you’re probably in the wrong place. If you want to live your best life, that’s excellent because that is what this episode and series are all about.

Your environment has a huge impact on the life you live and experience.

This could be the physical environment. You want to be in a healthy environment. Clean air, water, and such. But, the people make up a major part of the impact your environment will have on you, your life, and your future.

Associations (people)

Some of them you chose

Default

  • Family
  • Relatives
  • In-laws
  • Other

What can you do?

Prioritize good environments and good associations.

Acknowledge the power and influence they have.

Extreme example: If you were an alcoholic, would it be wise for you to hang out with people while they were drinking or for you to hang out at a bar? NO.

Why not? Because being around that behavior can influence your behavior. The ‌same is true for all other not so healthy or positive behaviors. Talked about the power of words. Hang around people that speak their negative mindsets and that will impact you too. Hang around people who have given up on their goals, don’t strive to improve or be their best, don’t care about living a good life? What do you think will happen? Do you think you’ll get them to change their ways or could they possibly, ‌over time, influence you, your thinking, and your actions?

Choose to be in an environment that is helping you live your best life. It is that powerful.

Recently, I pursued a mentor to help me build an additional income for my family. Yes, I wanted his advice and guidance, which has become invaluable. But, a huge part of what I knew I needed more of was the positive, constructive, encouraging environment that being on his team brought. The association with a more future focused group of people has helped me a lot. Sometimes you may need to remove what’s not helpful. Other times, you can add what is helpful.

What adjustments can you make to your environment or the people you surround yourself with that can help you live your best life?
