*From the dusty archives…
Growing up, my parents steered me away from friends who had undesirable behavior. Now that I’m a mom, I find myself doing the same thing with my children. Why? Today’s lesson is a simple one… you are the company you keep.
- If you surround yourself with people of good reputation, you will be viewed positively.
- If you associate with accomplished professionals, you will pick up on what makes them successful.
- If you affiliate with people who have good values, you will be perceived in the same light.
It frustrates me to see people who surround themselves with people of questionable character. If you align yourself with people who are arrogant, rude, negative, unmotivated, or who lack a moral compass, you will be perceived similarly. That is a FACT.
So, take a good look in the mirror today. Then, take a look at your contacts online and in your day-to-day life. If there are people of questionable character, now is your chance to unfollow, unfriend, or dis-associate from them. You don’t have to associate with negativity. After all, you ARE the company you keep. What do you think?
