Your friends may be weighing you down!

One area of study I like to spend my leisure reading time on is the power of circle of influence. The psychology behind motivation and how the people around us play a role in our success or lack thereof. Interestingly enough, of all variables that contribute to success, your circle of influence, the people you spend the most time with, the people you expose yourself to are the ones that influence who you become. Whether you realize it or not, that's the reality of human behaviour. 

I've personally experienced a tremendous amount of growth in my life, an exponential amount of focus, progression and most importantly happiness when I became more mindful of this variable and chose wisely. An interesting study that sought out to conclude how your circle of influence affects your levels of fear found that when people in a lab setting were exposed to things they were fearful of, their heart rate and blood pressure was significantly lower when they were in the room with their friends during the experiment vs being alone.

This concludes that having the right people around you to support you, also influences how scary your goals can seem or how well you overcome fearful situations in life. Humans are biologically hardwired to be social and to create tribes.
