Someone once said, “if you lie down with dogs u get up with fleas.” How true?
This applies also to the kind of people you surround yourself with. They are constantly coming up with opinions, suggestions, humor and point of views that you are subjected to daily.
At that rate, you cannot afford to allow yourself around just any person.
You need to INTENTIONALLY seek out valuable people in all fields of endeavor. Make these ones your people. Make the the ones that you spend 99.9% of your time with. Make this ones your counselors, teachers, play-mates.
Have people that can help you with your aspiration of success, have friends that treat others well,
have friends that are funny and have friends that are your cheerleaders.
