If you run with wolves, you will learn how to howl

It Is Better To Be Alone, Than In The Wrong Company.
Tell me who your best friends are, and I will tell you who you are.

If you run with wolves, you will learn how to howl.
But, if you associate with eagles, you will learn how to soar to great heights.
A mirror reflects a mans face, but what he is really like is shown by the kind of friends he chooses.
The simple but true fact of life is that you become like those with whom you closely associate for the good and the bad.
The less you associate with some people, the more your life will improve.
Any time you tolerate mediocrity in others, it increases your mediocrity.
An important attribute in successful people is their impatience with negative thinking and negative acting people.
As you grow, your associates will change. Some of your friends will not want you to go on. They will want you to stay where they are. Friends that don't help you climb will want you to crawl. Your friends will stretch your vision or choke your dream. Those that don't increase you will eventually decrease you.

Consider This:
Never receive counsel from unproductive people.
Never discuss your problems with someone incapable of contributing to the solution, because those who never succeed themselves are always first to tell you how.
Not everyone has a right to speak into your life.
You are certain to get the worst of the bargain when you exchange ideas with the wrong person.
Don't follow anyone who's not going anywhere.
With some people you spend an evening: with others you invest it.
Be careful where you stop to inquire for directions along the road of life.

Wise is the person who fortifies his life with the right friendships.

Choose to rise...Don't settle...and go for your dreams!!!

And most of all let God lead

If My Witness Be Silence; Then Let Me Keep My MOUTH SHUT!!!

Excellent post! I love everything in it and it speaks to me. I want my life to increase not decrease that is why i am changing the meetings i am going to. I want to grow
And this above all, to thine own self be true. And it must follow as night the day, thou canst not be false to any man. -Shakespeare

For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. Proverbs 23:7

WOW! Exactly what I needed this morning. I've been up since 4:00 A.M. my time, refreshed and drinking coffee. It is a good time to reflect [or obsess, depending on your point of view! ] and have had what I called "Today's Awakening" ... This fits that process. Maybe I'll post details another time ... not sure.

Thanks ...

Your last chance to do anything about today is right now.
If it's a need... ... God will supply it

What a wonderful post I think I will copy this and keep it where I can access it readily. this has certainly been pertinent to me. As I logged on through my emails I noticed an email address to someone I knew on the sth coast and thought to myself that I may send her an email. The past has shown me that this person has not been a very positive person in my life in the past and yet I had that insane urge to contact her even though i severed ties about 12 months ago. This posting has certainly reinforced my commitment to get well and associate with those who are on the same path. Thanks for this.
