Why Your Peer Group Is So Important
In life, our peer group (i.e. the people we spend most of our time with) has a massive effect on everything we do and think. I can’t emphasize its importance enough; for example, if all-day, everyday you were surrounded by friends at the peak of physical fitness, who saw health as the most important thing in the world, it’s pretty likely that eventually you would start to change your diet and be healthy as well (if only to keep up with them!).
Our peer group can spur us on to the greatest of heights, or pull us down and make it feel like there’s a chain around our neck anytime we try to improve ourselves. What we need to do is build a peer group that serves us. When we’re around people who have the same goals as us, who won’t let us off the hook, who check up on our progress, that’s what drives us to create the best results.
Their Success Rubs Off On UsIf all your friends are sociable types who take chances and really push themselves, you are going to start becoming that yourself. This is because our peer group has certain expectations of us, and we directly adhere to those expectations.
That’s why if you are determined to meet the right one, you will need good friends that will who will get involved and spur you on when you are dating a good man or set you strait when you are not. You don't need friends that will pull you down. You want friends who aren’t going to let you off the hook.
But let’s be clear, I’m not telling you that you need to start ditching your current friends and trade them in for new ones. What I do hope to alert you to is the possibilities that await you by expanding your social circle…
