Five a day

It’s often said that we are the combination of the five people closest to us. Whether this is emotionally, motivationally, or ethically, these people are supposed to have the greatest effect on us. However, many of us don’t have full control over the people that will be around us physically on a daily basis.

These five people will often default to those that we live, work or study with, however, we have the opportunity now more than ever to follow an unlimited number of authors, bloggers, podcasters, YouTubers, Instagrammers or Pinteresters, etc. Just by consuming their content, we can decide who’s thoughts and values we keep close to us.

Even if we physically have to spend time with a whole range of different people, we get to choose who has an impact on us each day.
