You are a Reflection of the Friends You Keep

Life is complex, but life can be simple. Just like the coin, life has two faces. What you are offered depends on the choices you make. One of the most powerful tools that influences life outcomes and choices we make is “Association”. Who do you associate with? The people you allow in your life and the inputs you allow them make in your decisions mostly influence the outcomes. Anytime you tolerate mediocrity in others, it automatically increases your own mediocrity. Always look around for those who reason with you and those who celebrate your growth. Look for those who criticize you, they do it genuinely for you to improve and not those who urges you on the wrong path and smile from within. 

Some friends that won’t help you climb will want you to crawl. Some associates will stretch your vision while others will choke your dreams. Those who never succeed themselves are always ready to give you reasons you can’t succeed too. Not everyone has the right to speak into your life. You are certain to get the worse of the bargain when you exchange ideas with the wrong person. Don’t follow someone who’s going nowhere, because direction and destination defines your speed and foresight. 

Be careful where and from whom you inquire for directions along your journey of life. Wise is the person who fortifies his life with the right friendship who has direction in their lives. If you run with wolves, you will learn how to howl, but if you learn with eagles, you will surely learn how to soar to greater heights.  A mirror reflects a man’s face, but what he is really like is mostly shown by his/her associates. The simple but true fact of life is, you mostly become like those with whom you closely associate. 

Choose your associates carefully!
