You always have choices. Use them to strengthen your future. William Carlos Williams said, “A man isn’t a block that remains stationary…” Yes, you are not a block. Do not be afraid to change your life. Do not settle for less. Less is not for you. More is for you. But if you don’t leave less, how can you get more? If you want more, you must do more.
People don’t go for more because they are afraid of failure. To get what you want in life, you must free yourself from your limiting beliefs. Do not believe what you are telling yourself. You are more than that. You are better than that. Whenever you catch yourself telling yourself something negative about yourself, you must immediately change that conversation. Replace it with something better, something more positive. Because positive thoughts are better than negative thoughts.
We need friends. But we need good friends. Your friends can make or break you. So when you are choosing your friends, choose wisely. And if you cannot find a good friend, then be a good friend to someone.
“If you can’t find a good friend, be one.”
Be a good friend to yourself, then to others. Because you cannot give what you don’t have. If you are not a good friend to yourself, to your soul, how can you give it to others? Impossible.
When it comes to choosing your friends, you are in control. Because you are your own master. You can decide who you want to hang out with. You can change your life by changing the people you hang out with. Yes, you cannot change people. But you can change the people you hang out with. It is within your reach. It is within your power. If you do not do it, who will?
It is better to hang out with positive, happy people. Because positive people are infectious. You can do a lot of positive things when you are around positive people. They always carry love in their hearts. They carry happiness wherever they go. And if you want to reach higher in life, you need to be around positive people. You need to do everything within your power to get rid of negative people in your life. You go up with positive people. You go down with negative people.
If you hang out with negative people, you can never enjoy your best life. You can never do your best work. You can never live your best life. Why is that? Because they are energy suckers.
If you want to do your best work, if you want to live your best life, if you want to make yourself happier, you can never do it by hanging out with negative people. You must change yourself. You must let them (negative people) go, so that positive people can come into your life.
