What is the value in surrounding yourself with people who are motivated and diving fully into life?
According to research conducted at the University of Rochester, “simply placing participants in the same room as a highly motivated individual improved their drive and enhanced their performance. But when we paired participants with a less motivated individual, their inspiration dwindled and their performance dropped too….By unconsciously mimicking the motivation of those around us, we better relate to one another – a useful habit in the evolutionary past, when belonging to a group could mean the difference between life and death.” Who are you surrounding yourself with? People who are motivated to accomplish their dreams, impacting you in a similar fashion, or something else? WorldWorks invites you to pump up your game and surround yourself with highly motivated individuals who will bring out the best in you.
