Dealing with bad thoughts

We cannot prevent birds from flying over our heads, but we can keep them from making nests on top of our heads. Similarly, bad thoughts sometimes appear in our mind, but we can choose wether we allow them to live there, to create a nest for themselves and to breed evil deeds.

Be an influence

I don’t want to be a product of my environment; I want my environment to be a product of me.

Pick out high quality people to hang out with

Status

Surround yourself with high quality people who inspire and challenge you

This is so damn important!

There is a lot of truth in the proverb

If you want to find out who a person is, take a look at his three closest friends

Why? Because you are influenced very strongly by the people who are around you constantly.

Youn don’t become them, but you sync in with the time. This process should be watched and should commence with high quality people from whom you can actually learn something.

So don’t waste your time, go the extra mile and start spending a lot of quality time with quality people (not only best friends, but your parents/grand parents/sisters/brothers also by the way!)
