Episode 003

What was it? And how does it apply to greatness? Check out this simple success principle.

How To: Be Great!

If you’re like me, you heard it countless times..

Birds of a feather flock together.. – mom?

But it’s SO true! It’s the law of proximity. Who do you hang with?

You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. – Jim Rohn

Do you se a pattern here? Rohn was right. Compare the paychecks or bank accounts of your closest friends, family members, or associates. Where do you all live? What do your homes look like? How about the kind of cars they drive? Chances are you even enjoy the same kind of activities..

Kinda scary right?

It can be.. OR It can be powerful..

It’s all in how you choose to use this law.

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great -Mark Twain

Do you choose to be great?

What do great people do?

How can you model you life and activities after them?

Who can you spend more time with?

Is it possible to become GREAT by osmosis?

What if you could just increase your chances?

Would it be worth it?

Am I done asking questions?


Sorry, I couldn’t resist.

But I had to make a point. All great questions.. Maybe you can come up with something even better.

Tony Robbins says “Quality questions create a quality life”

It’s powerful. Learn to ask better questions.. You’ll be amazed at the answers.

Are you ready to be GREAT?

You have greatness inside of you, ready to be unlocked.  It is now, ultimately, up to you. Will you choose to be what you were created for.. to be GREAT!?


btw, I have a great newsletter. I give plenty of tips, tricks, and free stuff out every day. Just put in your name and Get Free Stuff!


Cheers! To YOUR “Life on Purpose”

  1. Great post Justin!
    And one of my all time favorite quotes is “You’re the average of the five people that you hang around with”.
    Surround yourself with great people, who will inspire you, rather than with those who don’t even believe in what you’re doing
