You Are the Average

Jim Rohn, an American entrepreneur, author, and motivational speaker taught that we are the average of the 5 people we spend the most time with. There are, of course, those who would disagree, saying that we have free will, conscience, etc. And I would agree with them. However, when it comes to energy, I would side with JR, and here’s why…

Energy just is. We can affect it to a large degree, but when left to its own devices, it is susceptible to entrainment. – the synchronization of two or more rhythmic cycles.

And we are beings comprised of energy, and that energy is susceptible to the energy that surrounds it.

So, we could probably re-phrase the idea posed by JR by saying that we are the average of the 5 people/things that influence us or even that which we “consume” (ie read, watch, listen to, etc) most. After all, each “influence” has its own energy that can and will entrain our energy to it, if we are caught unawares.

And that’s what it all boils down to… awareness. Being AWARE of how we ALLOW something to affect our energy or not.

What 5 people/things influence you the most?

What effects does that influence have on you?

Is it positive or less than positive (ie desirable or less than desirable)?

What would you change and how?

Just a little bit of something to ponder on, my friend…

Until next time, take care!
