    “The less you associate with some people, the more your life will improve.
    Any time you tolerate mediocrity in others, it increases your mediocrity. An
    important attribute in successful people is their impatience with negative
    thinking and negative acting people. As you grow, your associates will
    change. Some of your friends will not want you to go on. They will want you
    to stay where they are. Friends that don't help you climb will want you to
    crawl. Your friends will stretch your vision or choke your dream. Those that
    don't increase you will eventually decrease you.

    Consider this:
    Never receive counsel from unproductive people. Never discuss your problems
    with someone incapable of contributing to the solution, because those who
    never succeed themselves are always first to tell you how. Not everyone has
    a right to speak into your life. You are certain to get the worst of the
    bargain when you exchange ideas with the wrong person. Don't follow anyone
    who's not going anywhere.

    With some people you spend an evening: with others you invest it. Be careful
    where you stop to inquire for directions along the road of life. Wise is the
    person who fortifies his life with the right friendships. If you run with
    wolves, you will learn how to howl. But, if you associate with eagles, you
    will learn how to soar to great heights.
    "A mirror reflects a man's face, but what he is really like is shown by the
    kind of friends he chooses."

    The simple but true fact of life is that you become like those with whom you
    closely associate - for the good and the bad.

    Note: Be not mistaken. This is applicable to family as well as friends. love, appreciate and be thankful for your family, for they will
    always be your family no matter what. Just know that they are human first
    and though they are family to you, they may be a friend to someone else and
    will fit somewhere in the criteria above.

    "In Prosperity Our Friends Know Us. In Adversity We Know Our friends."

    "Never make someone a priority when you are only an option for them."
    "If you are going to achieve excellence in big things,you develop the habit in little matters.
    Excellence is not an exception, it is a prevailing attitude.."..”
    Colin Powell

    Emily Dickinson
    “How happy is the little stone
    That rambles in the road alone,
    And doesn't care about careers,
    And exigencies never fears;
    Whose coat of elemental brown
    A passing universe put on;
    And independent as the sun,
    Associates or glows alone,
    Fulfilling absolute decree
    In casual simplicity.”
    Emily Dickinson

    Dr. Seuss
    “And when you're alone there's a very good chance

    There are some, down the road between hither and yon,
    that can scare you so much you won't want to go on.”
    Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Places You'll Go!

    J.R.R. Tolkien
    “The road must be trod, but it will be very hard. And neither strength nor wisdom will carry us far upon it. This quest may be attempted by the weak with as much hope as the strong. Yet it is oft the course of deeds that move the wheels of the world: Small hands do them because they must, while the eyes of the great are elsewhere.”

    J.R.R. Tolkien
    “He [Bilbo] used often to say there was only one Road; that it was like a great river: its springs were at every doorstep, and every path was its tributary.

    J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
