Badasses hang out with other badasses. Be a badass by surrounding yourself with like minded people.
The people you spend the most time with have an incredible influence on the person that you are.
You become like them and they become like you. The attitudes, the conversation and the activities. They all rub off.
Other people can either be a positive influence on your life or they can be soul suckers, dragging you down with their attitudes and problems.
Think about the people you spend the most time with. Are they free thinking achievers? Do they do what they want in life, set goals and achieve their dreams? Or are they complainers, conformists, people who settle for less?
Do they support you in being a high achiever or do they want to bring everybody else down to their level?
Most people tend to just fall into groups of friends without really thinking about it. But just stop for a moment and shed some conscious thought on the matter. Who do you spend the most time with? Do you want to be like these people? Because if you hang out with them long enough, if you aren't already like them, you will become like them.
Looking at the people you spend the most time with is like looking into your own future.
You don't have to live on autopilot. You can take control and choose the people you want to spend the most time with. Choose people that you want to be like. When it comes to creating a positive social circle all it takes is a little bit of conscious thought and effort. The problem is most people never even think about it or consider changing their friends if they are unhappy.
A badass dominates life. Life does not dominate them. Unfortunately some people let life dominate them. You can't change these people, all you can do is set a good example for them. But if you spend to much time with these energy drainers they will suck the life out of you.
Be a badass by surrounding yourself with other badasses. Make friends with successful people. People who enjoy life and don't complain. People who are glass half full. Date women who are happy, secure and successful. Steer clear of women who are needy, clingy or looking for someone to pay their way.
If you want to become better then you need to allow the good influences of other people to rub off on you. Let them bring you up to their level.
