The company you keep spells out your future

2016-10-20 06:00

They say “birds of the same feathers flock together”.

The reasoning behind this is that if you find certain people attractive then you must know there is a commonality among you.

Oft times parents warn their children not to associate with gansters, drug dealers and many such negative thinkers.

The reasons they warn their children is because they know if a child associates with those type of people, trouble is brewing.

The company of people you keep says a lot about you.

If you associate with low level thinkers, you are bound to sink to such levels.

Thinking beyond that, and you will make your associates uncomfortable around you.

After all, you don’t associate with wolfs if you are a sheep nor do jackals keep compamy with lions.

The power of attraction does not allow coincidents to occur.

A bird that grew up with chickens will never fly because it knows nothing of flying.

When you continuously associate with negative thinkers, negativity becomes your daily life, and nothing seems possible.

Complaining and moaning are things that you excel in. Nothing is ever good enough for anyone.

Jealousy is what you live for, gossip is your middle name.

With negative associates you become busy with other people’s lives and you neglect yours.

You don’t mind spending hours discussing things that do not matter. Time is of no value. Alcohol and drugs make sense to you.

Associating with the motivated changes you for the better. You see life from a different perspective.

Your view to opportunities is not shaded.

You strive for opportunities even in areas were many see the impossible.

Associate with positive thinkers and know the importance of helping others.

You know the meaning of hands-up not handouts. With positive associates creativity is part of your innovation.

You dream big and create miracles. You have endless limits. Life becomes purposeful and every journey has a significant end.
