Fat Friends

If your best friend becomes obese, you’re 57% more likely to do the same.

That’s insane.

It hasn’t been easy, but I attribute much of my success in the past few years to two things:

  1. Surrounding myself and becoming close with people who crave improvement and success; feeding off their energy, ideas, and support.
  2. Allowing relationships with stagnant, negative, and uninterested people, to fade.

“In time, you begin to think, act, and even look a little like those you hang out with. But not only do their attitudes and health habits influence you, their relative success does too. If the people you spend your time with are high achievers, their achievements can influence your own.”
