GUARDING MY HEART WITH ALL DILIGENCE

By Unknown Author

The less you associate with some people the more your life will improve
Any time you tolerate mediocrity in others, it increases your own 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 to climb will want you to crawl

Your friends will stretch your vision or choke your dreams
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

In prosperity our friends know us
In adversity we know our friends

Never make someone a priority when you are only an option for them

If you are going to achieve excellence in big things, you develop the habit in little matters
Excellence is not an exception, it is a prevailing attitude
