Focus most of your energy with the good people in your life.
How do you know who’s the good ones?
- Can you count on them?
- Do you like being around them?
- Are they good influence? (positive influence on your life)
If you answered ‘no’ to any of those, then maybe you should reconsider that friendship.
“One true friend adds more to our happiness than a thousand enemies add to our unhappiness.”
– Marie Dubsky
Are you a good friend?
Answer that question and you’ll find out if you are a good one.
Remember, what you send out always comes back to you.
“The most I can do for my friend is simply be his friend.”
– Henry David Thoreau
Status does not guaranty greatness.
Base your value on goodness. Be good for others and good people will gather around you.
“I have friends in overalls whose friendship I would not swap for the favor of the kings of the world.”
– Thomas A. Edison
Be good, be social and be open to others. The good people will come to you.
Don’t be blinded by status. Listen to your guts and be good to all.
Choose your friend carefully. There’s no good in being around people that aren’t pushing you to become more then you already are. And you should also do the same for them. Win – Win relation is what you should looking for.
“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.”
– Mark Twain
Associate yourself with greatness and do your best to be deserving of that association. Great people will accept you around if you are willing to do what is needed to be great too.
Take the chance to be around greatness when it is offered to you. Even if you don’t get to join permanently right away, you’ll do better the next time.
“When you fail you learn from the mistakes you made and it motivates you to work even harder.”
– Natalie Gulbis
Greatness will accept you around not because you succeed, but because you are actively reaching for success. Failing is not the end. It’s just one more step unto greatness.
“Never be afraid to fail. Failure is only a stepping stone to improvement. Never be overconfident because that will block your improvement.”
– Tony Jaa
Improvement is the consequences of keep doing it.
