This past month I turned 27. I would have to say that it was a pretty good day all in all. I got to the gym at 6am to start training my clients, it was my last day for running our 5/3/1 hypertrophy program, the whole gym sang happy birthday to me, and I got some cake…well..two to be exact. It was a great reminder on my birthday that I am surrounded with some really awesome people that I am very grateful to have around. I’ve started to notice something as I get older, and that is the older I get the faster the years seem to fly by. One thing that I’ve come to realize as I age (and yes, I’m still really young) is that who you surround yourself with on a daily basis has a profound effect on who you are and the person that you become. This is something that I didn’t really think about, and probably didn’t even care about when I was younger, but as I age I realize that this means more and more to me if I want to have a quality life, and pursue the things in life that I want to do. People who want to be successful hang around other successful people.
With all of that being said, I am very happy with the place and the people that my life has led me to be around at this point. 26 has been a pretty good year for me, and I feel that 27 is going to be even better. Surrounding yourself with like minded people makes all of the difference when trying to reach your goals. And, not only are they good for helping you reach your goals, but they make your birthdays pretty sweet too! Thanks everyone!
