It is proven that the people we interact with the most, influence our level of consciousness and our overall focus.
When I look back over different points in my life, I see clearly how much influence my top five have had. I remember when I was in my twenties and trying to get fit, realizing that the friends I hung out with the most did absolutely no form of exercise at all—and had terrible eating habits.
Then I started spending time with some friends who made eating well and staying fit a priority. Guess what happened? Have you had an experience like that?
Motivational speaker Jim Rohn famously said that we are the average of the five people with whom we spend the most time.
Who are your five?
Really, who are the five people you are with or in contact with the most? How do these five impact your life? How are you impacting the lives of those with whom you are one of their five?
The Venerable Women organization is open to being “one of your five.” Together, in sacred community, we are transforming the world.
