90% of your success depends on this secret...

Have you ever heard "show me your friends and I will show you your future"? This is actually not a myth, and will be a essential element to deciding your success. David McCone, from Harvard University, conducted a 25-year-long study which shows that more than 90% of an individuals success can be determined based on the people they surround themselves with most often -- known as a 'reference group'.


what is a reference group


A reference group is basically your inner circle of friends, family, coworkers, or the people you spend the most time with. These friendships, and relationships can significantly effect a person's beliefs, values, mindset, views, and overall life trajectory. Research suggests that over 90% of an individual's success can be attributed to our reference groups, or the people we surround ourselves with.


the power of reference groups


When we interact with ambitious and supportive individuals, we're more likely to set higher goals and strive for excellence. Conversely, negative or unsupportive influences can hinder our progress and limit our potential. Research shows that by sitting within 25 feet of a high performer, our productivity can increase by 15%, but being near a low performer can reduce it by a staggering 30%. If you find yourself in a room with low performers...change your room.

We are constantly being influenced by the people we allow into our inner circle or reference groups -- this makes it so important to control exposure to those who make bad decisions, and damage our ability to be productive.

In conclusion, the significance of reference groups in determining individual success cannot be overstated. By actively cultivating positive, ambitious, and diverse social circles, we can harness their collective power to propel us towards our goals and aspirations. So, choose your reference groups wisely – they could be the key to unlocking your full potential.
