We have all heard that we become the people we hang out with. Jim Rhone says that you become the average of the 5 people you hang out with. You can actually predict your health, and your career for the rest of your life. So, to put this in to action in our lives we need to remove the comfort zone friends, and involve the friends who continually seek improvement. But this brings a problem. Anyone smarter and more ambitious than us will not want to hang out with us. In their eyes, we are the comfort zone people needing to be removed. To try and seek them out in person would be considered border line stalking. So how do we spend time with the people who will bring out the best in us, if they do not want to waste time with us yet? Any brainstorming would be appreciated! My ideas are following them on twitter, Facebook, and other social media sites. Then blogging about them, and letting others who want to grow, spent time learning and discussing them. Any other ideas?
