One of the biggest challenges you come across as humans is finding your true purpose in life and figuring out your mission on this planet. You long for happiness all your life and struggle to find yourself ways to attain it. There are some people born with talents that make finding their purpose easy for them. Then there is a large section of people who are not aware of the purpose of their life. They may be financially successful, lead busy lives, and hold important positions but remain unhappy. They have a constant feeling of missing the real meaning of their life.
This is where Peter Sage steps in. He is an inspirational growth speaker, author of the award winning self-help book ‘The Inside Track’, and a renowned life coach who has created numerous programs to help people understand their true potential, counter adversity and live a life of contentment.
According to Peter, one of the keys to success is understanding that the environment always beats will over time. What he calls ‘the law of conformity’. Something that is emphatically demonstrated by the power of your peer group. He asserts many people hang around with people who don’t challenge them mentally or physically. This makes them comfortable with their situation, and comfort is the death of progression. He says,
“You become who you hang with. Let’s not complicate it. If you hang out with 9 motivating, go-getting positive individuals you’re going to become the 10th. If you hang out with 9 people who use recreational drugs, sit on the couch and eat junk food you’re going to become the 10th. Long term behaviour always adapts to who you hang out with so if you want to change your life, first change your peer group. It’s one of the fastest ways to condition that level of change.”
Peter firmly believes that all those who were born to live their true purpose and embrace evolution begin by switching from a comfort-centric view to a growth-centric view. This helps them raise their standards, something most peer groups don’t do. He recommends his mentees choose their friends carefully because that chooses their destiny. Once you are able to do just that, magic begins to follow.
