From Our Friend Peter Diamandis – “The People Environment and Media that Shape Our Mindsets”

Literally during the weekend of Newsletter writing/dictating/thinking… our friend Peter Diamandis nice blog hit our in box during a break from the writings….

We are really big fans as long time follower may know, these first two writings were done in 2015 after seeing Peter at a convention, prior to reading several of his books see our writings: HERE (2015), HERE(2015), HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and finally HERE

From his blog as follows:


Here are the high points from the blog, but the above title is hot linked to the post…

1. Who You Hang Out With… Your Community

Have you heard the saying that you’re the average of the 5 people with whom you spend the most time? 

Curating your social group, who you’re hanging out with and who you’re having conversations with is critical. It’s one of the most important investments you can make in training an optimistic and Abundance Mindset—it shapes who you are and who you’ll become.

2. Your Physical Environment

The second key element that you can control as you develop your Abundance Mindset is your surroundings—everything from the music (harping on the 15 year old on this one) you listen to and the brightness of you room, to what you hang on your walls.

3. What You Watch & Read

Let’s now turn to the third element under your control—what you watch on TV or read in the newspapers.

Our version of this, is Breaking News… but you guys get the point….

Thanks Peter for a great rest from a lot of authorship this weekend!

Have a Great “Refreshed by Peter” Day!
