あなたが最も長く時を共にする5人の人間の平均が、”あなた” という存在だ。 




私は一時期英語勉強のために「The Simpsons」というアメリカの人気アニメを毎日通勤電車の中で視聴していた。

主人公家族のお父さんであるホーマー・シンプソン(Homer Simpson)は、番組の多くのシーンで缶ビールを飲んでいる。









“You’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with” - Jim Rohn

This is exactly ”Birds of a feather flock together.”

I think that this "five people you spend the most time with" is also applicable to TV programs or Youtube that we often watch.

I believe that our bodies are made up of the things we eat every day, and that our brains and minds are made up of the media we interact with on a daily basis.

For a while, I used to watch a popular American animation called "The Simpsons" during my commute every day to study English.

Homer Simpson, the main character, drinks canned beer in many scenes of the show.

At the time, I was fascinated by life in the United States, and in addition to my preconceptions about the lives of ordinary American men, I also liked beer from the beginning, so I started drinking beer almost every day.

I felt that drinking beer was normal and did not feel the need for abstinence.

Of course, the fact that I continued to drink beer was a problem of my weak will, but it is also true that I convinced myself based on the behavior of the program characters I liked to watch at the time.

Based on this experience, I feel that the media that I have been exposed to for a long time is not so different from the people who have been with me for a long time.

If I could say one thing to myself in my 20s, I would recommend finding someone to be your mentor when you're a little younger, learning humbly, and stepping up.

Since it's difficult for me to find a mentor now, I'm trying to switch my mentor and the person I spend the most time with to "books."

In order to survive without being weeded out in an age of rapid change, I would like to associate with five people (or books) who have the ability to respond to change.
