“Surround yourself with the
dreamers and the doers, the
believers and thinkers,
but most of all, surround
yourself with those who see
greatness within you, even
when you don’t see it yourself.”

In the words of Jim Rohn: “You are the average of five people you spend the most time with.” Choosing one’s company is like choosing which kind of person you’d like to become.

A study found that people with low self-control prefer the company of strong-willed peers as a way of motivating themselves and to make up for their lack. Catherine Shea, lead author of the study, says “People with low self-control could relieve a lot of their self-control struggles by being with an individual who helps them.”

In general, good friends may help your life last longer. An Australian study conducted by the Centre of Ageing Studies at Flinders University found that those who had a large network of friends live longer than those with the fewest friends by 22%. The researchers think that having friends who discourage unhealthy behaviour contributes to longevity. Furthermore, having the right company makes one less susceptible to anxiety and depression.

In an article by Kelly Rigby of she-power.com, she emphasized the importance of choosing friends wisely and focusing your energy on people who make you feel good. She writes, “Surround yourself with people who reflect the person you want to be. Choose friends you are proud to know, people you admire, who love and respect you. People who make your day a little sunnier, simply by being in it.”

In addition, fashion consultant and author Stacy London says, “You should feel beautiful and you should feel safe. What you surround yourself with should bring you peace of mind and peace of spirit.”
