Who You Try to Impress Is Who You Become

I don’t recall where I heard this, but who you try to impress is who you become so choose who you want to impress wisely.

Early in life it’s a fairly common experience to do something dumb so someone thinks you’re cool. Later in life you realize that’s a bad deal—why would you let someone else dictate what you do and set you on downward path? Yet, this happens all the time at work, at home, your friend group, your spouse, and so on.

Be mindful of the influence of who you are trying to impress as it might just change your life!
