You’re the Average of the 5 People You Hang Around

Hi! Here are some intriguing tidbits from the illuminating James Altucher:

Your Awareness is the average of

*the 5 things that inspire you the most

*the 5 things you eat

*the 5 things you think about most often

*the 5 things you read

….Sometimes my thoughts need an upgrade. My food, friends, sources of inspiration, reading materials are all great. I’m lucky. And focused. But when it comes to thoughts….ugh- often my brain goes over the most boring things again and again. “That needs cleaning” “I need to finish that” “I’m late” “Where is my son now?” “More dishes” “I have to get something done” “How much time do I have left?” “I’m going to write that down” ~an endless chattering.

What would I rather be thinking? In order to upgrade my average OVERALL thinking platitude? “That would be awesome to paint” “I’m going to go paint right now” “I love him” “I’m so lucky” “I feel great” “Everyone is so special” “I am a being of light”

I’m trying to bring in more mindfulness these days. A walking meditation of sorts. Here’s a great definition:

“Mindfulness is being present to whatever is happening. Without judgement”

Enjoy!
