Wallpaper: You Can’t Change the People Around You, but You Can Change the People Around You

You Can't Change the People Around You, but You Can Change the People Around You

Over the years, one of our most popular Minimal Maxims has been “You can’t change the people around you, but you can change the people around you.” Meaning, we can’t force others to change, but we can surround ourselves with more supportive relationships.

Because we often need a reminder that, as Jim Rohn famously said, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with,” our friends at SPYR transformed our “change people” maxim into a stunning wallpaper for your smartphone and desktop, which you can download for free below.

Now, every time you pick up your phone or turn on your computer, you’ll be reminded of how important it is to foster empowering relationships.
