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 man's 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

Surround yourself with people who are headed
in the direction you want to be going
Listen to people who tell you that you can
Hang around with people who are doing it.
Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, we can all start from today and make a brand new ending.
~Carl Bard~

"Live today fully, expressing gratitude for all you have been, all you are right now, and all you are becoming." Melodie Beattie
