(From the article)" Surround yourself with people you want to be and it's far less taxing to do what you should be doing.


In his excellent book The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business, Charles Duhigg says: "When people join groups where change seems possible, the potential for that change to occur becomes more real."

The Longevity Project, which studied over 1000 people from youth to death had this to say:

The groups you associate with often determine the type of person you become. For people who want improved health, association with other healthy people is usually the strongest and most direct path of change. [The Longevity Project]

And the research on friendship confirms this. From my interview with Carlin Flora, author ofFriendfluence:

Research shows over time, you develop the eating habits, health habits, and even career aspirations of those around you. If you're in a group of people who have really high goals for themselves you'll take on that same sense of seriousness.

The 12 cognitive biases that prevent you from being rational

The 12 cognitive biases that prevent you from being rational | Life @ Work | Scoop.it
The human brain is capable of 1016 processes per second, which makes it far more powerful than any computer currently in existence. But that doesn't mean our brains don't have major limitations. The lowly calculator can do math thousands of times better than we can, and our memories are often less than useless — plus, we're subject to cognitive biases, those annoying glitches in our thinking that cause us to make questionable decisions and reach erroneous conclusions. Here are a dozen of the most common and pernicious cognitive biases that you need to know about.

And how to get over it. 

 

When was the last time you did any of the following at work?

* You didn’t share your honest view on a topic, even when asked.

* You got upset with someone, but didn’t let them know why.

* You procrastinated on completing a deliverable primarily because you just didn’t see the value in it.

* You praised someone in public, but criticized them in private.

* You responded to an exchange with, “Whatever you want is fine. Just tell me what you want me to do,” when in actuality, it wasn’t fine with you.

Lore Ochoa's curator insight, August 6, 9:37 PM

We all feel like failures from time to time. While this is a normal feeling, you have to find a way to see yourself and your life from a different perspective. Sometimes we ignore the “little things.” Just because you are not a millionaire, don’t live in a mansion, and you don’t drive a fancy car, that doesn’t mean you’re a failure. In fact, it’s quite the contrary.

"No one makes the state of discomfort a goal. We don’t welcome friends into our homes by saying, “Make yourself uncomfortable.” In fact, much of our time is spent avoiding people, places, and situations that challenge our comfort zone. But we all know that getting shoved from our complacency can produce astounding improvements in our lives."

 

Yet, we also know that facing our fears and questioning our ruts and well-ordered beliefs can seem as impossible as my teenagers awakening to my unfathomable wisdom. Yeah, not likely..
