“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” These words opened eyes to the fact that the people we hang out with, the people we call friends, they all have an influence on the decisions we make in life.
1. The Complainers
Complainers are people who are always complaining about how bad their life or job or whatever is. They constantly whine about everything but never do anything about it. That pessimism is contagious. Which is why you should think twice before sitting down with a complainer.
2. The Entitled
These are the people who feel like they are entitled to certain things in life, that the people around them owe them something. This mindset can be deadly to a person trying to be successful. Know this: You, or anyone else, are not owe to anything. If you want the good life, you have to create it.
3. The Conformers
Conformers are the most popular of all. They are the ones who conform to the limits. They are simply living like robots—waking up, working 40 hours a week at a job they hate, going home, sleeping and doing it all over again.
4. The Animals
They’re the one who lives to go out every night. Sure, the party animal might be fun, but beware—they can distract you from your dreams.
5. The Doubters
Doubters can be downers — they will listen to your big dreams, but they will be the first ones to tell you they don’t think it is a good idea. So identifying the doubters in your group will be beneficial to you and your success in the future.
