Every once in a while we need to look back and take stock of where we are in our lives. Are you getting to where you want to be? Are you happy? Are you working towards your goals? Are the people around you making you better? That last questions is the one I want to focus on today. Are you surrounding yourself with people that make you better?
Luckily, in a CrossFit gym, I think we have access to some pretty amazing people that are all striving to be the best possible versions of themselves.
However, there are a lot of other hours in the day.
I've written before about the saying "you're the average of the five people you spend the most time with" and I think that is true.
It is so much easier for negative people to bring you down that for you to bring them up. So why hang around with people that aren't going in the same direction as you?
I can't embed the video, but Gary Vaynerchuk explains that we all need to audit our friend circle from time to time. Watch the video here.
Basically, you may need to cut some people loose. It's really hard to do that, but it may be the best decision you could ever make.
Don't let others hold you back. Determine your goals, in the gym or in life and go after them without letting those closest to you get in the way.
