I agree with Jim Ronh when he said that you are the sum of five people you spend most time with.
That is why it is crucial for you to choose your friends wisely. Most of us kind of get friends by default - we are around the people we met along the road, in our schools, at work or by accident.
But, I don't think this is the smartest idea. It is if you love who you are and don't want to change. But, if you...
- Are aspiring to be in a better relationship that the one you currently have - hang around people who are in amazing relationships.
- If you want to be rich, hang around people who are rich.
- If passion is what you think you lack, choose to hang around passionate people.
- If it's about being the life of the party - find the funniest and most entertaining people you can and spend time with them.
Learn from those people who have what you want to have. I know it may not seem like it, but many of those people would be more than happy to spend time with you, if you just ask. Being a mentor to someone is just as rewarding as is being a mentee.
I just wanted to talk about this a bit. Choose your friends wisely, bond with people you can learn from and who can learn from you. And always keep in mind that, if you are the smartest person in the room, you are in the wrong room - as in that case you will have little to nothing you can learn. Don't take the last sentence at face value though, as it is good to invest your time in letting others learn from you about what you're good at.

Friendship is a special bond.
Every once in a while, fate takes pity on you and sends you a friend. Someone who really gets you. Who sees you, every side of you. Someone who can reveal yourself to you
You are not an alien. You have found your kind. Your words weave with their words into a blanket that holds you both. You are safe. Even in conflict... You feel safe. The connection is so deep, you almost don't see that sliver of space between you. You are finally gotten. This is special. Don't let go. Enlightened.
