Who’s In Your Circle?

There’s an old proverb that says “you will be known by the company you keep.”  We would expand on that.  Not only will you be known by the company you keep, meaning that the world in general will include in their evaluation of you the nature of the people you surround yourself with, but, to a large extent, the people you surround yourself with will influence who you actually are.

Do the people around you talk about ideas and bold plans for changing the world? Or do the people around you talk about the other people around you and work to tear them down?

Do the people around you have energy and seem to always be in motion? Or do the people around you seem perfectly content to sit still and let the world happen around them?

Do the people around you take an interest in your dreams and contribute ideas and encouragement? Or do the people around you only want to talk about themselves?

It’s hard to think about minutia when everyone around you is thinking ideas; it’s hard to sit still when everyone around you is racing; and it’s hard to wallow when your friends are pointing you forward, pushing you and helping you find your way.

So, choose wisely the company you keep; and also be a person the people you admire would choose to keep in their company.
