My dad always told me, "You are what you hang out with", so this makes perfect sense to me. According to Addicted2Success you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.  So if you hang out with burned-out losers, ultimately they'll drag you down, if they haven't already.  If you hang out with five ambitious high achievers, they'll drive you to become even more successful
