People matter more than most realize! There’s a phrase that says, “Impartation of association” simply put it’s a person becoming more like the one they associate with. If someone hangs around a lazy person very often, in some ways, they become lazy at certain things as well. But if someone hangs around a focused person, they too will start getting more serious with themselves. That leaves the one question: If you wanted to be more focused, but you normally hung around those who weren’t, most of the time, does that mean you ditch them?
Relationships are important. There are some that people value. I’ll answer this question like this:
There are friends who are there to confide in
There are friends who love hanging out
There are friends who are laid back
Of course there those who also betray, use, abuse, manipulate, belittle and genuinely make fun of us as well. Sadly there are people who hang around more with that group of people than the list I mentioned!
People shape us and mold us into who we are. You’ll never know what can happen in your life with anyone you meet. It’s good to always value people. Dr Mike Murdock said, “Success is a collection of relationships” What that means is that the people we spend more time with determine the direction of our life. It’s not really a matter of good or bad, right or wrong, but rather a factor of time.
Someday, someone will walk into your life and make you realize why it never worked out with anyone else.
I’m not referring to dating type relationships or how to find a man or woman! What that means to me is that there is someone who you’ll always enjoy being around, have a good time with, be challenged by and become successful with. It’s a good thing to make the best out of everyone.
If you don’t like where your life is going now, ask yourself, “Who do I need to spend more time with?”
