You Are the Average of the Five People You Spend the Most Time With


by Brandon Steiner June 02, 2016 0 Comments

When you have the opportunity to hear a motivator like Kevin Hall, you listen. Kevin came to Steiner Sports a few weeks ago and spoke to the staff about the Power of Words and what should motivate you to seek greatness everyday.

Something of note that I took away from his talk: you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.

It’s so true, isn’t it? At the end of the day, you shouldn’t be wasting your time with anyone that is going to hold you down and not help you be better. In this video he cites Bob Knight’s discussion with us about the coaching “team” he assembled behind him; guys that he looked up to and found ways to associate him self with…Bill Parcells, Paul Brown, etc. When Steiner Sports sold Bob Knight’s memorabilia a few years back, I traveled to his house and saw his library of hundreds of books written by the greatest coaches ever.

Who are the five people you spend the most time with?
