You’ve probably heard someone say something like, “I don’t know how I found myself in this situation.”

Maybe you’ve said it yourself.

It’s a good time for a reminder that we never “find ourselves” in  circumstances we don’t like. We create them.

Luckily, we can change them, too.

Oftentimes, it starts with the people we spend the most time with during the course of our day.

A few reminders:

– Surround yourself with people who inspire you … and eliminate those whose presence you dread. 

– Negative people are energy vampires. If you let them, they’ll extract all of yours and come back for more.

– Positive people add energy and happiness to your life. Spend more time with people like that.

– What negative people say about you is 100% about them and 0% about you.

So if you’re struggling or in a rut with your fitness, take inventory of the people you’re spending time with and the kind of thoughts you’re having. There’s a strong connection between the two.
