The Proximity Effect
I find it interesting that the proximity of a disciplined person has an affect on others. The person doesn’t have to say anything to have an affect on the people around them. People act differently around religious people. When a physically fit person walks into a room of less fit people, there are looks of admiration and looks of disdain. People notice when the consistent choices of others have a cumulative effect on their success. This is why choosing a disciplined lifestyle is so important. It’s usually what separates those who have influence and those that do not. The ability to change the temperature of the room by simply walking into it is the result of a disciplined life.
