In a recent double blind scientific study, individuals seeking to lose weight had a greater level of success in a shorter period of time when they were surrounded by other positive and likeminded people with similar goals.
Now, you can take a deep breath, because this is not another weight loss blog post. I certainly post plenty of them, but this ain’t one! Rather, I bring up this study to demonstrate a point that I think deep down we all know but often forget.
Surrounding ourselves with positive people and people that inspire us is one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves. Our levels of success can be augmented or drowned simply by with whom we choose to associate.
The picture you see above is of me with my girls. My sisters. My tribe! They are the people who push me the hardest, support me when I need it the most, kick me in the butt when I’m acting foolish, and set me straight again when I’ve lost focus. They inspire me to do better everyday.
Find people who inspire you. Find people who you can help inspire. Find people who match or compliment your values, and want the quality of your life soar, as well as the goals in your life get crushed on a regular basis.
Find your tribe and do whatever it is you do to elevate yourself.
Here’s to being the champion of your own health and happiness!
