It's time for you can't just stop bigask question of the day. Welcome to you can't just stop the place for quietlystubborn entrepreneurs with big goals and green after encountering hundreds of hiachieving athletes, entrepreneurs and world changers. I've discovered thatmany times their impact comes from the questions they ask as much as theactions they take. That's why I invite you to answer a question each in everyday to reach your goal and now for today's question, who are my five closest friends and dothey lift me up or hold me down? Well, if he hadn't heard it before we are theaverage of our five closest friends now a lot of people when they hear that when they think about this average ofour five closest friends thing that it usually goes to money like we make theaverage of what our five closest friends make, and that's not what thistotal concept is about. It's not just...

...about money. It's also aboutrelationships like how do they treat their closest friends, their family?How did they, how do they treat people in general? Are they kind? Youknow what values do they have? It's, not just the money. It's also thevalues that were the average of these same values as well right. So the question today is about you know,look at that circle of five closest friends and you know again: Are they lifting you upor are they holding you down? You need to make some changes. There Imean over my lifetime. Friends have come and go and some of those who havebeen on purpose right because they were holding me down and it sounds really cold andcalculating and kind of cruel to say that Hey, I'm cutting you loose becauseyou're holding me down, but if you want to, if you have places you want to goin life things, you want to do...

...goals you want to achieve you're, notgoing to do that. If somebody's holding you back, if they're feeding you headfuls of garbage about negative attitudes about the world or negativeattitudes about money or negative attitudes about any number of things,if you're getting fed a constant stream of negativity from who are supposedlyyour closest friends, that's not good! It's going to be hardfor you to achieve the things you want to achieve in life, because you're,just you're, just starting from this low base line. You've got all these hurdles toovercome before you ever even get anywhere, and so you know again holdingyou up lifting you up, holding you down. What's it going to be and what changesneed to be made to raise the average of your five closest friends see youtomorrow. I.
