Creating A Supportive Living Situation | Workshop Guru
This week came with some great news! Last week, both my roommate and I booked commercials a day after each other, and then this week we filmed our commercials a day after each other. We were discussing how nice it was to have this amazing support system at home- and then I realized how important a living situation that is aligns with my goals was to me, and how much of an impact it make for you.

Renowned businessman Jim Rohn once said that “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”

Are you okay with being that average? Are you in a situation that supports you and your goals? No matter what your situation is, having the right support system, especially at home, is crucial, and if you feel like you aren’t in a situation of encouragement and positivity, perhaps some reflection and changes are in order.

Who are your five people? Give them a shoutout and share this tip with your friends on Twitter! Help out your fellow community of actors (plus each share is an entry to win an exclusive Workshop Guru tote bag!)

Stay amazing!

  1. A simple yet effective reminder of “You are the company you keep.”

    Great thoughts, Ajarae, keep pumping out your vids, they’re great.

    I liked your Agent series with 90210, that was informative!

  2. Thank you for the video. I’ve heard this concept before, with Robin Sharma (which is great). But I never really thought about it or cared to really focus on it. Thank you for challenging me to really take this serious and really surround myself that support and encourage me.
