The less you associate with some people, the more your life will improve. There are people you just don’t need in your life especially if their impact is never felt in your life. For everyone we tolerate mediocrity in others, we increase our own mediocrity. Funny right? But that’s the truth! An important attribute of successful people i love is their inability to tolerate negative people, impatience towards negative thinking and negative acting people. Like it or not as we grow our associates will change.
Some of the friends will know now, will not want us to leave them or grow. Not because they necessarily genuinely care but because they don’t want to grow nor leave where they are and they need someone to stay stuck with them. Friends that don’t want you to climb will love to see you crawl. Your friends will stretch your visions and choke your dreams and those that don’t increase you will definitely decrease you.
If there’s anything i have learned over time is never to receive counsel from unproductive people and never to discuss my problems with people that will never contribute to the solution because those who never succeed themselves will always be the first to tell you how. Not everyone has a right to speak in your life. You are certain to get the worst of bargain when you exchange ideas with the wrong people. Never follow anyone who is not going anywhere, with some people you spend an evening with others you invest it. We need to be careful where we stop to inquire for directions along the road of life.
Any man who fortifies himself with the right friendship is considered wise. We need to know that when we run with the wolves, we learn how to howl. But if we associates with eagles we learn how to soar to greater heights. A mirror reflects a man’s face, but what he is really like is shown by the kind of friends he chooses.
The truth is we become like the people we closely associates with, be it for good or for bad. In prosperity our friends know us, in adversity we know our friends. Never make anyone a priority when you are only an option to them.
Character is everything…choose your team. #To be continued…..

Thanks a lot.
Yes! I cannot tolerate people who seem to only contact me when they need help. I also can’t understand when people settle in a safe zone with seemingly no desire to grow! It’s maddening.
Yes Kelley, its really sad. Thank you for your kind response.
“In prosperity, our friends know us. In adversity, we know our friends.” THIS RIGHT HERE! Sometimes it takes some disappoint and a bit of forced maturity to understand how friends can impact our lives for the better or worse. Great job!

https://polldaddy.com/js/rating/rating.jsWoah.., you described this all so nicely!!?
Thank you very much.
nice article again and I´m so tired as fed up with friends only calling when they need help and I love wolves as all creatures in the mother nature they give lesson day to day, unfortunately lots of citizens so called friend are “spit in the rain”, a thing is so true when you´re suffering baddie times, these buddies are wolves backed to mountains and looking for a new carcass and I prefer a wolf in the mountains. I think so.
Take care from Madrid
