Day 37 – 1% Change {90-Day Challenge} Who Are Your Mentors?

You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.

Day 37 - 90

So, if you are the average of the FiVe PeOpLe you spend the most time with, what kind of person are you?  Do you like the person you have become?

That’s a deep question, I know, but it is definitely worth taking the time to think about.  What kind of people do you HaNg OuT WiTh?  Are they people you aspire to be like?  Do they challenge you to do better than you are doing and go further than you are going?

If you’ve been reading my 1% Change {90-Day Challenge}, you may have noticed that I talk about My MeNtOrS from time to time.  These are individuals that in many ways are living the life that I want to live.  They have a vast amount of wisdom.  And because they are further down the road than I am, their input is of utmost importance.

I remember when I first read Jack Canfield (author of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series) talk about the importance of mentors in his book The Success Principles.  It stirred in me the desire to have mentors of my own.  I didn’t have any mentors at the time, and really didn’t know who even to ask.  So I UsEd tHe ReSoUrCeS I HaD and enlisted mentors whose material I could read, watch, or listen to.  People like John C. Maxwell, who although they didn’t know me, were passing on their wisdom and experience.

That was a few years ago and today I now have a handful of personal mentors, but it all began by using what I had.

Who are your mentors?  Maybe the first question to ask is, “What kind of person do you AsPiRe To BeCoMe?”  Once you know that question, then you can find the mentor that best fits and begin to learn from them.

It really is true.  You become like the people you spend your time with.  So ChOoSe WiSeLy.  🙂
