Years ago, one of my mentors told me that the person I’d be in five years depended heavily upon the people I hung around for the next five years. Choose badly and I would have bad results. Choose well and I would have good results. When I asked for a deeper explanation, he taught me that what I put into my mind, and what I think about, will determine who I will become. The people I associate with have a great deal of influence upon what I think about. To manage what I think about, I must manage who I include in my orbit.
