One of the biggest things that people do not talk about is their peer group, community, and support. For someone that values constant improvement in all aspects of my life from business, fitness, and relationships, it can get quite isolating to the outside world.
I was having a midnight movie night just a couple of days ago with an old friend I knew seven to eight years ago. Back then I was an army enlistee, and we would go out, hang out late, and break some rules like walk into places we should not be walking into.
Friendship and Personal Growth
Since then, I have changed from a counter-cultural individual to a pretty well-adjusted individual. I no longer spend too much time hanging out late, and I don’t smoke as much as I did before (just a little if there’s whiskey involved). I am well-traveled, have read a gazillion books from philosophy to literature, and have created revenue in my business as a dating coach and multiple industries… the list goes on.
