The Company You Keep

It is better to be alone then in wrong company.

Tell me who your best friends are I will tell you who you are.

If you run with the wolves you will learn how to howl.

If you associate with eagles you will learn how to soar.

A mirror reflects a mans face, but what he is really like is reflected in the friends he chooses.

Any time you tolerate mediocre in others it increases your mediocre.

As you grow you associates will change.

Some of your friend will not want you to grow on- they want you stay they way you are.

Friends who don’t help you climb will want you to crawl.

Your friends will stretch your vision or choke your dream.

Those who don’t increase you will eventually decrease you.

Never receive counsel from unproductive people.

Not everyone in your life has a right to speak into your life.

Don’t follow anyone who is not going anywhere.

Wise is the person who fortifies his life with right friendships.

Your best of days are surrounded by different people of your worst of days.
