Speading Good News (Part 156)

Hello, Blog Readers!

I look for information that is useful, inspirational, informative, motivational, awe-inspiring, educational—anything that is good “brain food,” and I blog it here for all who are interested.  Occasionally, I blog about something from my own knowledge or experience.

It is my hope that you will enjoy and be able to use most of what is here.

If you’d like, post a comment and let me know what you think.

Words of Wisdom

THE COMPANY YOU KEEP

It Is Better To Be Alone, Than In The Wrong Company.

Tell me who your best friends are, and I will tell you who you are.

If you run with wolves, you will learn how to howl.
But, if you associate with eagles, you will learn how to soar to great
heights.

A mirror reflects a man’s/woman’s face, but what he/she is really like is shown by
the kind of friends he/she chooses.

The simple but true fact of life is that you become like those with whom
you closely associate—for the good or the bad.

The less you associate with some people, the more your life will
improve.

Anytime you tolerate mediocrity in others, it increases your
mediocrity.

An important attribute in successful people is their impatience with
negative thinking and negative-acting people.

As you grow, your associates will change.

Some of your friends will not want you to go on.
They will want you to stay where they are.

Friends that don’t help you climb will want you to crawl.

Your friends will stretch your vision or choke your dream.

Those that don’t increase you will eventually decrease you.

Consider This:
Never receive counsel from unproductive people.

Never discuss your problems with someone incapable of contributing to
the solution, because those who never succeed themselves are always
first to tell you how.

Not everyone has a right to speak into your life.

You are certain to get the worst of the bargain when you exchange ideas
with the wrong person.

Don’t follow anyone who’s not going anywhere.

With some people you spend an evening; with others you invest it.

Be careful where you stop to inquire for directions along the road of
life.

Wise is the person who fortifies his/her life with the right friendships.

Happy moments, Praise God
Difficult moments, Seek God
Quiet moments, Worship God
Painful moments, Trust God
Every moment, Thank God

If you see people without a smile today, give them one of yours.

Choose to rise…Don’t settle…and go for your dreams!

And most of all, let God lead you in everything you do!!

    Excellent.

  2. TaskForce says:

    There are many things in life that people take for granted and the biggest thing is when they are struggling, looking for direction, or just seeking answers they most often look in every place, but the one they should. All your answers, direction and peace from your struggles can be received only when you ask for help from God.
