One of the first things that was presented to me to consider, when i undertook my recent journey of transformation under the tutelage of peter sage was taking an inventory of my peer group……at first I saw this as some fucking elitist / judgmental thing…….over time I realized that the adage of “if you lay down with dogs you’ll wake up with fleas” was so true………you are the average of the 5 people you hang with most…….

it’s tough for people to have a look at their friends and make a decision to either cut them off or limit contact with them……..we are social animals and we all yearn connection……..being alone is something we are fucking afraid of……..i have had to let go (some will say they let go of me……and maybe they are fucking right)…….initially it wasn’t pleasant and now i find it was the right thing to do and this freed me up to engage with other like-minded souls……..sometimes people are good for you to go from a to b…….but not b to c……..who knows you may pick up again at point d or e or z……..so make sure you conduct yourself in a classy way and don’t be a cunt………

so you might not have peers you can hang with that are better for you in terms of your growth…….well thank fuck for the internet…….it is teaming with so many communities that have many like-minded people with whom you can share your thoughts and feelings with as well a place where you can contribute……….most of my new peers are in fact on-line……..and in a short period of time i have found I have grown a metric fuckload more with these guys and gals having my back and vise versa…….

take a look at those you hang with…….not in a judgmental way but ask yourself the question “are these guys going to help me get to where i want and can i be of benefit to them?” if you can’t honestly answer fuck yes to both then start looking elsewhere………trust me if my experience is anything to go by you’ll find life is better…….

I love you fuckers and please remember to be nice to each other but more importantly be nice to yourselves”

cheers,
