Jim Rohn said, “You will become the combined average of the five people you hang around the most. You will have their combined attitude, health and income.”
If we want to get further in our life personally and professionally, we must associate ourselves with people who will be a positive influence on our lives.
That is unless you are living in the Zombie Apocalypse and if that is the case, you want to hang with a solid upstanding person who is a real bad ass zombie killer who happens to have a lot of guns, bullets and some nice samurai swords help as well.
Why do we want to hang out with people who are better than we are?
When we associate with others who have a greater skill set or have achieved more, we are challenged. This in turn brings out the best in us and inspires us to do better.
So, when you see that bad ass dude / dudette who can kill zombies like no tomorrow, your personal observation and modeling yourself after that person’s positive example will help us reach new heights. We’re not just talking about killing zombies either, this will apply to everything we do in life.
I don’t know why the universe shows favor upon us when we surrounded ourselves with optimistic and uplifting people, but when we do it has a direct cause and effect on our demeanor, confidence level and performance.
So, if you are hanging out with an incredible zombie killer, then you will also improve when it comes to killing off zombies.
You want to see yourself do better in business? Associate yourself with people who are doing an incredible job at what you would like to do, and you will see yourself grow.
Sports?… same thing. Hang out with winners and you will gain that winning spirit.
You are who you hang out with.
“But Ray, how do I become like Robert Kiosaki (Rich Dad Poor Dad), Tony Robbins (Unleash The Power Within), Jen Sincero (You are a Bad Ass), or Dean Graziosi (millionaire Success Habits) when I can’t even get near these people?”
Simple… read their books, listen to their audio books, watch their You Tube videos, read their blog posts from their websites.
The more that you are able to fill your brain with their knowledge, the more you will start emulating their ideas.
How To Get Started With Your Zombie Killer Badass List
How many people do you know that you would like to emulate?
What I want you to do is take about 10 minutes and think about ALL the people that you can think of that you want to be like.
I am not talking just about celebrity authors or such, think about people in your life that you look up to at work, at church, at the club, etc.
NOW… this is very important, who of these people tend to be negative, brash, un-giving and un-grateful?
If you can ID some of those people and they are on your list, strike them from your list ASAP. These are the sort of people who will throw you to the zombies just to save their own backside.
In other words you do not want negative people in your life. If they are negative, they will bring you down and plant seeds of negativity in your mind.
What you need to understand is that the universe wants you to win and win big. But you have to have a positive outlook and hang out with the right people. Just doing these two things will have such an impact on your life that once you do, you will look back at yourself and be astonished at the distance you have traveled.
Remember, you want to be one of the bad ass zombie killers, but you will need to hang out with these sorts of people if you are to become one. That or take the long road and kill a couple thousand zombies and live to tell the tale.
Well, no…but the odds are a heck of a lot better of you becoming part of the undead mob verses learning the ropes from a seasoned zombie killer.
Me, I would rather find someone to emulate first before taking on some zombie horde.
Take my advice, you need to start writing down those names of people who you wish to be like and start kicking that zombie behind.
When you have that list, share with me one or two people from your list and tell me why you chose them.
Keep those swords sharp!
