Do the people around you define who you are, and who are you will become. Motivational speaker Jim Rohn suggests it does.
“You’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”
This is just an idea. There’s no science behind it. Nonetheless it’s an interesting question to think about. Is your identity written by the people you choose to be with? In some ways this makes sense, we see with young people if they get in with “the wrong crowd” things can go wrong for them, and equally others can influence them for good.
What do you think? What do you believe shapes who we are?
