There’s a reason why people tend to excel better in group oriented settings.
It doesn’t matter if you’re hitting the gym with some friends or just starting off your college career with a few classmates. When you’re surrounded by other individuals who are working towards the same goal, you’re more inclined to succeed.
There really is strength in numbers… Here’s how you can harness and channel it into self-improvement.
They say that only 8% of people actually follow through with the goals they set.
If that’s the case, then what could possibly explain why the vast majority gives up on their dreams and aspirations?
Studies show that the answer is as simple as these folks not being able to hold themselves accountable for their own actions.
Maybe you’ve made it a point to eat healthier throughout the week, but after a few days you slip up and then fall short again and again and again until you eventually quit what you set out to accomplish altogether.
The thing is, just having someone else there to encourage you to press on can make a world of difference.
There’s no doubt that developing the discipline to hold yourself accountable is a difficult task to master.
However, the more like-minded people you associate with, the better you’ll become at turning your dreams into a reality.
On the other end of the spectrum, hanging around people who are traveling down a different path in life will pull you away from whatever goals don’t fit into their trajectory.
Why do you think the saying: “choose your friends wisely” has stuck around for so long?
It’s because the individuals closest to you are often a direct reflection of who you really are.
If you’re serious about unlocking your secret and bettering yourself as an individual, then make it a point to associate with others who value the same end game result.
Holding yourself accountable is difficult enough already, so why not bring someone else into the picture who’s going to help keep you in line?
Don’t accept failure for what it is and let yourself fall into the 92% of people who miss the target.
Stick to a plan of action and do everything you in your power to continuously move closer to the goals you’ve set.
