Reality check

When you hang around the same people, it’s easy to lose perspective of where you are in life. If your five closest friends are moving at a snail’s pace, you may not realize that you aren’t pushing as hard as you could. Find someone who works 10 times harder than everyone you know and discover a way to become their friend. Their work ethic should give you a reality check and help you become more ambitious when it comes to achieving your goals.
