This may surprise you, so prepare yourself;

It has been scientifically proven that you become the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.  Before you blow off this idea, think about it.  Here are a few examples of this phenomenon that you may recognize in your own life:

Have you ever noticed when kids hang out together one may begin acting like the other? Soon they all begin behaving the same way? It’s the reason parents say ” I don’t want you hanging out with those kids”. Or maybe you have noticed that you have a friend who acts totally different when they are around certain people….. Maybe you’ve noticed that about yourself.

Have you ever known anyone who moved to the south without an accent, yet when you talk to them they speak with a southern drawl after just spending some time there?

In office environments the women in the office even begin to get their “feminine cycle” at the same time! It’s a fascinating phenomenon and it’s true for your financial environment as well.

Your finances will follow this same formula of the 5 people you spend the most time with give or take 5-10 %.  I’m not kidding! Give yourself this test-

Take a look at the finances (an average look) of you and the 5 people you spend the most time with.  Add up the numbers and you will find that your finances match within 5 or 10 %. Amazing but true!

If you are serious about deliberately creating wealth in your life like I am, begin hanging around with wealthy people. Get a Wealth Mentor.  You will see that they do things differently.  They think differently. They Act differently. In truth, they are no different from you in any other way.

It’s worth stepping out of your comfort zone, to learn what they know, and if you have the right attitude, you may find they are willing to share their wisdom with you.  Many times, all you have to do is ask.

I began by interviewing the people I wanted to learn from, and what I found is most were more than happy to share their experiences with me.

It’s time to up your average and it’s time to do it Now.
