“You are who you hang out with” is a phrase most of us heard growing up from people who wanted the best for us but had no idea how true this statement is! This phrase has also been passed down from me to my children, but we’ve never talked about it in depth.

I’m currently enrolled in a Mastermind group, and I have assignments, and readings daily. Most of what we practice is geared toward developing positive habits, re-programming our subconscious and learning how to think independently. My husband Greg witnesses me reading aloud and explaining how cool and exciting my experience is daily. Today, I witnessed the power of positive energy and good habits and how they can be transferred to another person.

One of the new habits I am forming is to perform a simple “service” aka a “chore” each week but once I complete it, I’m supposed celebrate like I’ve won the Superbowl. My first service was to bathe my dog, then I celebrated with energy. Without realizing it, Greg has adopted this practice. Today, when he completed a task he was proud of, he ran around like he does when his Dallas Cowboys win a game, shouting like he won the Superbowl! It was so funny, yet I could feel his excitement and I couldn’t help but smile and laugh along with him!

My best advice to anyone who isn’t feeling positive or is discouraged is to look at who you surround yourself with and find the most positive, fun people you can, because it is true! “You ARE who you hang out with!”

    One of those habits is who you hang out with!

  • Miss Ann, “service” aka a “chore”, and “celebrate like I’ve won the Superbowl” Thank you for sharing about your husband it brought me joy and a chuckle.

  • I’ve heard a similar statement regarding income. Namely, your income is a reflection of the income of your 5 closest friends. Love your version regarding attitude, Ann! You made my day! 🙂
