It’s hard to see a difference when living in the same environment, same town talking to same group of people. I found this leading nowhere unless you’re satisfied living like you do now

Think Different

Unless you’re 60 years old – getting into environment of people who do completely different things than you and live their lives differently will impact you. I think it goes from the very basics of how we learn – by imitating.

Of course you need to be open minded for changes, that’s why I mentioned age is one of the issues. Old people often appear to be stubborn and over confident in their way of life, but anybody can be stubborn.

The other one – find people who live the life you want to live and the closer you’re to them the more of them you’ll pick up
