Three key questions:
1) “Who am I around?” You’ve got to evaluate everybody who is able to influence you in any way.
2) “What are these associations doing to me?” That’s a major question to ask. What have they got me doing, listening to, reading, thinking and feeling? You’ve got to make a serious study of how others are influencing you, both negatively and positively.
3) “Is that okay?” Maybe everyone you associate with has been a positive, energizing influence. Then again, maybe there are some bad apples in the bunch. Take a close and objective look.
