Truer words were ever spoken
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 succesful
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
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 hights
A miror reflects a man’s face
But what he is really like is
Shown by the kind of friends he chooses

The simple but true fat of life is that
You become like those with whom
You closely associate
For the good and the bad

Note be not mistaken
This is applicable to family
As wel as friends
Yes…do love, appreciate and
Be thankful for your family, for
They will always be your
Family no matter what

Just know that they are
Human first and though
They are family to you
They may be a friend to someone
Else and will fit
Somewhere in the criteria above

In prosperity our friends know us
In adversity we know our friends
Never make someone a priority
When you are only an option fort hem

If your are going to achieve excellence
In big things, you develop the habit
In little matters
Excellence is not an excception
It is a prevailing attitude
