The Right People, the Right Life – the Wrong People…

“If you run with the wolves, you will learn how to howl.  But, if you associate with eagles, you will learn how to soar to great heights.”  Colin Powell

It’s been said, you become like the 5 people with whom you spend the most time.  Said another way, show me the people you hang out with today, and I’ll show you your future.

Sometimes we treat relationships with a casualness that ignores the massive influence other people have on our lives.  We spend time with people out of convenience and proximity, without questioning whether or not the influence these people have on us is positive or negative, helping us or hurting.

Some people lift us up, challenge us and make us want to be better.  Others drag us down, put us in questionable circumstances and bring out the worst in us.  Do you want your life to soar to great heights?  Start with an honest assessment of the people with whom you are spending time.
