Choose who you associate with wisely

Thursday January 26, 2012 #389

 “Know what you look like? Look around, your closest associates will be your reflection.”

~Louis Martin Jr

This is an area that most under appreciate:  Choosing your associates with intention.  Most allow their associations, both personal and professional, to just happen.  Without intention, we can find ourselves surrounded by people who drain us rather than enrich us.  This doesn’t mean shunning someone who is not immediately and obviously beneficial.  But certainly you must pay close attention to those around you and determine over time if they are to be part of your intentional circle.  Finally, you must have the courage and confidence to remove toxic associations from your life.

Reflect today on those you spend most of your time with personally, and professionally.  Your choice with whom to associate clearly reflects on what you look like to others and to yourself.  Choose with intention, choose wisely.
