Bring out the best in YOU

Bring out the best in YOU.

‘YOU are the average of the five people you spend the most time with’ Jim Rohn.

For many of us, January – the start of the calendar year is a time to reflect…

🔸What am I most proud of?

🔸What did I learn?

🔸What were my greatest challenges?


We start to plan what we could be doing differently…

🔸What do I wish I had done more of?

🔸Where do I want to set boundaries?

🔸How can I create better habits?


We start to visualise the year ahead and what could be in store…

🔸How do I want to feel this time next year?

🔸What risks am I willing to take?

🔸Who can support me?


These questions are a useful guide, and you can add to your list and work through many more. My biggest advice, however – to create the future you aspire to have, one of the most critical factors to address will be to reflect on the environment you put yourself in and its impact on you.


Behavioural science tells us that how YOU show up is a function of who you are in a situation. Therefore, your behaviour is impacted by what is going on around you and how you respond to it. It means that you can work on yourself, have great intentions etc. but the environment you are in and those that you are spending most of your time with will have a significant impact on how you show up and what you achieve.

Make 2021 the year that the five people YOU spend the most time with, bring out the best in YOU.
