“I believe every human has a finite number of heartbeats. I don’t intend to waste any of mine.” - Neil Armstrong

In one of Darren Hardy’s, Darren Daily segments, he described one of six factors that contribute to longevity of life.

It is connection.

“Finding and sharing belongingness with the right group of like-minded people” - Darren Hardy

According to Jim Rohn, you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.

You are not average.

You were created for greatness and longevity.

Proverbs 9:11 - “For by me thy days shall be multiplied, and the years of thy life shall be increased.” - KJV

So, who are your five, fave people that you hang around with on a regular basis?

Do they support and strengthen you in good or bad times?

The authentic ones usually show up when the s . . . hits the fan. The other ones are long gone.

Choose your inner circle wisely.

As of April 2020, there were 3.81 billion users on various social platforms.

Connecting with people is awesome but seeking validation outwardly is counterproductive.

Work from the inside out otherwise you will always be dependent on some external force in order to fill the void.

Validation begins at the core.

As you begin to redefine your inner circle, criticism will bombard you from people who were supposed to be your friends or even loved ones.

As you begin to gain momentum with your quest for authenticity, the same people will fade into the sunset.

So here it is.

You are the best version of the five people you choose wisely and spend the most time with.


You are now on the journey of living your best life.

Carpe Momentum
