Keep Good Company
“He that walketh with wise men shall be wise” – (Proverbs 13:20). You are the company you keep so select your company carefully. The company you keep can either help you build your dreams and be true supporters or can be the complete opposite. In order to be constantly improving you need critical feedback. If you aren’t able to get critical feedback from these individuals it will be difficult to pinpoint the areas you need to improve. Fortunately, if you are resourceful enough this will not affect your growth. However, in general, it’s better to keep good company – people who uplift you, people who understand you, people who respect your purpose and people with similar goals.
“For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required” – (Luke 12:48). Develop the habit of giving back to your community. Giving back helps improve the lives of others around you. Giving back to others can also improve your mood and it is good karma. Being in a happy state will encourage you to be more grateful and will keep you focus on your goals. So give back wholeheartedly when you can – it’s also a great morale booster.
