A clear indication of how you are proceeding on the path to achieving your goals….look at the five people closest to you in your life. Take an fearless inventory of who you spend the most time with and talk to the most. Do they carry the same values and priorities that you do?
By osmosis, we pick up on the beliefs, motivations and lifestyles of those we are closest to. When we align with people we aspire to be like or admire – we automatically uplevel our success quotient.
In yoga, we call this satsanga.
Sanga means community.
Satya means truth.
Satsang = a community of truth seekers or like-minded individuals.
In the study of self-actualization, the siddhis (sages) of ancient India understood the power of community and knew the influence the collective mind (in Jungian terms – the collective unconscious) directly and exponentially impacts the quality of our thoughts, moods and motivations. Choosing to be healthy, wealthy and wise gets a lot easier when you are hanging around people who are doing the same.
As always, please share, “like” and leave a comment on what works for you and post your questions for next week here.
