I’m writing you this as I sit in the airport waiting for our final flight home to Perth.
For the last 6 weeks my team and I have had such an amazing time traveling all over the Philippines spending well needed time with close family and friends and I really can’t believe how quick the weeks flew by…
Anyway, while waiting for my flight I plugged into one of my favorite podcasts and this got me thinking, maybe you’ve heard this before . . .
“Look at the income of the 5 people that you hang out with most and your income will be roughly the average of those people.”
I’ve heard it many times, and have done a lot of introspection on this idea. I do believe it to be absolutely true, but for many of us it’s just not that easy to seek out 5 highly successfully people and hang out with them enough for their ideals to rub off.
I look at the people I hang out with most, my mates from school, parents, my grandparents, and my few close friends that live in close proximity, and when I do an income analysis of what they make compared to myself I’m left scratching my head.
I’m doing way better than all of them. I don’t say this to brag, but rather to try to work out why I’ve been able to achieve success when I don’t necessarily hang out with hyper successful people on a daily basis.
You wanna know what I discovered?
I cheated my way to where I am.
There is absolutely a way to rub elbows with the best and brightest and have their way of thinking rub off on you enough to make great gains personally, health, wealth, and whatever else.
What has allowed me to personally break away from the pack while still spending most of time with them?
The one thing I do, that others I know surely don’t is, I listen to motivational material every single day and it’s rubbed off on me in a big way.
My iPhone is packed with Brendon Burchard, Jim Rohn, Les Brown, Earl Nightingale, Zig Ziglar, Napoleon Hill, etc. You name it and I’m listening to it on a daily basis.
It’s literally a way to cheat your way to a millionaire mindset.
Wake up each day and listen to something highly motivational for an hour and you’ll see just how little time it will take you to start approaching those goals you once thought were just dreams.
