Who You Attract Is Who You Are
Don’t like the crowd you’re around? Then first you must change yourself. But your environment shapes who you are, isn’t this a catch-22?
Well one way you can simulate a new environment is to surround yourself with books. Read about the people you want to become. They’ll become your intellectual ancestors.
As your demeanor, habits, and behavior change so too will the people you surround yourself with.
You realize that these people who you once put on pedestals are no different from you and I. Now, you see them as equals. You can relate on many levels. They become your friends, your co-workers, your romantic partner.
Who you attract is a reflection of who you are.
