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
mediocrity in others, it increases your mediocrity.
attribute in successful people is their impatience
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
