Who are you friends? Who are the people you spend your time with? Are they lifting you up or putting you down? Are they growing or dying? Are they positive or negative people?
It is your choice. It is up to you to decide how you want to spend your time. Remember, time is gold. Time is everything in life. If you waste your time, you waste your life.
We don’t just need people around us; we need great people around us. You need great people in your life. People who will help you succeed in life. People who will lift you up when you are down. People who will bring light into your life. People who will never hurt you. People who are doing productive and great things with their lives. You need them. They will challenge you to be better than you are today. They will encourage you to do the impossible. They will tell you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear.
Nadia Comaneci said, “I believe that you should gravitate to people who are doing productive and positive things with their lives.” If you want to grow, if you want to be a champion, this is a good advice for you. You cannot be a winner if you keep associating yourself with losers.
When you associate yourself with people who are doing great things with their lives, before long, you will start to do great things. You will start to think and work like them. Find a person who is doing well in life, and research what they did, and how they did it. Make it a habit of listening to great people, people who have done great things with their lives. Before long, you will start to think and act like them.
If you do what other successful people are doing, you will be successful.
