Is it be or get?

Ex.

''self-discipline is key, and this is how you are not going to be influenced by people around you easily.''

Or

''self-discipline is key, and this is how you are not going to get influenced by people around you easily.''

".....you're not going to get/be influenced by........"

You can use either get or be, without any difference in meaning.

However the former (get) is usually used in informal English.

Be influenced makes more sense but allow me to suggest a sentence.

Self discipline is key; it is how you will prevent yourself from being easily influenced by those around you.

  • Hello thx for your suggestion. However, the 'those' pronoun that you've just used can be misinterpreted(instead of just using 'people') can't it?

  • People and those are interchangable in this context:) use which one you prefer, but it's smoother to say those.
