Most of us assume that the biggest habit breaker is our willpower to take different actions.
Sure that sounds great, and can definitely help us to change our habits.
But here’s the thing, we only have a limited amount of willpower, and it is exhausting to use.
The good news is that we always want to fit in and do what our friends are doing.
Ssoooo, if our friends already possess the habits we are looking for, the more time we spend with them the faster that habits will become one of our own.
Check this out, when I first started college I was frequently drinking and hanging out with people to make new friends.
Not a bad thing at first, but then I realized that I was spending most of my social time with people who did not have goals nor healthy habits.
As time went on, I became more and more selective of who I was spending time with.
Shortly after this realization, I found myself only spending time with the more determined skiers who had goals and were also in college.
Then I started spending a lot of time in the Crossfit gym. This way their workout and eating habits rubbed off on me.
All in all, if I tried to go to the gym at 6 am consistently and cook my own healthy meals each night while surrounded by people who mostly wanted to party, it would have been next to impossible.
Who should you spend more time with to better your habits?
