Mirroring is the act of doing what we are surrounded by. From simple things such as accidentally scratching your head in an aerobics class when the instructor scratches hers, to larger things such as runners tend to have runner friends and obese persons tend to have obese friends. If you don't run right now, but always wanted to, wouldn't it be easier to find someone who runs to help you out? What if you hung out with those runners all the time? Would you start to dress like a runner, eat like a runner, look like a runner – ultimately becoming a runner too? If you want to excel in your life you need to understand that you are a mirror reflection of the five people you hang around with most. So take a minute. Think of who you hang out with. I mean really think about who your friends are... who your family is... are they like you? Do they struggle with the same things you do? Do you want to be just like them? Ask yourself... Do the people around me support me and add to my quality of life? Or are they a negative influence? Do they have a negative outlook on life? Do they inspire me and motivate me to be my best? Do you ever ask yourself if you inspire people and have a positive influence on others?
