Be wary of the company you keep

“You are the company you keep,” is a well-known saying as well as one of the most valuable proverbs for anybody’s advancement.

Though you may be wise, foolish friends will eventually destroy you. Though you may be foolish, wise friends will show and teach you success. This is an easy way to prosper.

The key is to keep company only with people who uplift you, whose presence calls forth your best. What a simple rule for wisdom and life! Get rid of foolish friends, and choose the wise for friends. You will grow in wisdom and avoid much trouble in life and most importantly you will protect your peace!

Ofcourse, giving up your friends will be hard but try as hard to remember that we are what we feed our souls. If all we are accustomed to is negativity and mediocrity then we will also become that. If you hang out with trash you will also be perceived as trash, if you hang out with problematic then you will start to seem likewise as you most certainly are enabling.You may believe the lie that you can resist foolish friends. Or your foolish friends may be popular, costing you status with peers. Or you may naively think you can help foolish friends but if you allow an evil input in your life, you will lose your good manners. Ignore your feelings or past history, and cut off your foolish friends. Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers and thinkers, but most all, surround yourself with those who see greatness within you, even when you don’t see it yourself!
