Peer pressure during our school years often leads to groupthink, causing us to lose our identity in the quest to fit in.
Growing up, for me, it rarely led to anyone's elevation. Instead, it taught me to hide and remain within the margins.
However, the right kind of pressure, combined with a peer, cohort, any group of choice or a mentor's keen observation, can profoundly impact. When we and those we care about hold us accountable for our actions and words, helps us see what we said we would and show us our wants. It helps us to stand up for our beliefs consistently in what we do and say.
You become a reflection of the company you keep.
You directly mirror the expectations of your peer group.
