Speaking of uncontrollable laughter a reader sent me this amazing video. (Warning: This video will make you laugh uncontrollably, too!)
The video is of two newscasters who can’t stop laughing because a model fell on the runway not once, but twice. Their smokers laugh mixed in with what sounds like asthma and wheezing makes for an incredibly hilarious laugh.
It’s hard not to laugh watching this video because their laugh is so contagious.
Which brings me to the point of this post.
Who you hang out with will directly influence your thoughts and beliefs. In fact, it is said that we are the cumulative sum of the 5 people we spend most of our time with along with our past experiences.
Books and TV and movies and magazines and even blogs will (or can) impact your thinking and open you up to entirely new worlds.
But a lot of people get stuck in their circle and they can’t break out of their little world.
I’m not suggesting you drop your friends. No. Not even close.
But there’s nothing wrong with having different friends with different interests.
If you’re trying to break into a particular field befriend someone in that field.
Before you continue to question why you can’t break out of your same old habits and thinking take a look at who you spend most of your time with.
What you do most of the time or who you spend most of your time with will generate most of your results and will generate most of your thinking and habits!
It’s not a coincidence that unhappy people love hanging out with other unhappy people. After all, misery does love company.
It’s not a coincidence that sports fanatics hang out with other sports fanatics.
It doesn’t take scientists and researchers to figure out that having overweight friends can make you overweight too.
Actually, evidently it does.
Note: The inspiration for this post came from Nancy, a loyal reader, who wants to start a business from home after being a stay-at-home mom for several years. She emailed me asking for advice because she’s really intimidated.
I found out that all of her friends are stay-at-home moms that don’t have jobs or businesses.
My first piece of advice was for her to become friends with other stay-at-home moms that have started businesses.
She will quickly learn that it’s not as intimidating as the thinks and she’ll be laughing like the newscasters in no time!
