An old phrase . .
"lay down with dogs, you get fleas" . . .
Well as silly as it sounds, its true .! Being cognitive of whom you surround yourself with and devote your time to is critically important to your overall well being.
wait . . . what .? uh, yeah!
In periods of transition, it is often difficult to weed out those you have grown accustom to having by your side, however many times it is necessary.
Nowwww, this is not saying to cut all ties with your associates, friends, loved ones, etc. I am just merely mentioning that everyone can't stay along for the long haul . . .
Lets just chat through this for a moment . .
You are working towards a goal and every time you are around this certain individual there is nothing but words of negativity, pessimism and uncertainty . .
How much is that encouraging you? How is that making you hungry to continue striving? . .
Well it may encourage you simply to prove them wrong but if this person is in your circle why aren't they believing in you?
Talking through goals with you . . Pushing you . . Praying for you . . Planning with you . . wait . . what . . ??
As you are molding, making and shaping your life --chose to surround yourself with the doers, the shakers, the believers . . Those that have goals for themselves and aren't envious of your future because theirs is equally as promising . .
Do not continue to contaminate your life with unworthy individuals . . .
You are a reflection of your surroundings . . Chose carefully!
