SOLID WORDS FROM COLIN POWELL

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.

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.

Note: Be not mistaken.
This is applicable to family as well 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

    #Truth. Death to all dem haters that don’t want me moving Higher. When things start moving forward for you they say you have changed,that’s a lie they are the ones changing.

    As u move higher,your friends have got to change. You can stay with the same people. How will you learn new things?

    I don’t agree with the last part of this article ( the part about family) because family is family, but this is a real eye opener for me. Good write up.
