You might heard that you are the average of 5 people who you spend your time with. Getting out of this circle is hard, but possible.
The people you surround yourself with shouldn't be physically near you. Those could be the people you follow on the internet or authors of the books you're reading.
One of the things I'm moving towards is surrounding myself with people who are kind, intelligent, and energy-giving.
I have no idea how to do that, so I try to avoid people who are not kind, not intelligent or energy-consuming. That's it.
