He who walks with wise men will be wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm. - Proverbs 13:20
It is not untrue that success breeds success. People who hobnob with successful people often blossom into success, because they get religion about pursuing success against all odds. They are positive minded. They are willing to try their hand regardless of their fears and oppositions. If you keep consorting with people who aren’t purpose driven – who lack the foresight of success in their mission, they will drive you into negative thinking and complacency for an average life.
Hence, you stand a good stead if you begin to rethink the future you desire vis-a-vis the company you keep. If the company you keep cannot grease the skids for your success tomorrow, it’s high time you parted company with them. Keeping company with those who will throw water on the pursuit of your potential is allowing your destiny to wither on the vine. Therefore, rescue yourself from every bad company, which has the tendency to corrupt and disrupt God’s plan for your life.
You need to understand that the drive to be successful is contagious. The same goes for slothfulness. If you are lacking in passion to live a purposeful life, it may be connected to your companionship with loafers. The life sentence of an idler is to pursue materialism and inordinate pleasure which take him nowhere near the corridors of success. Hence, as you resolve in your mind to part company with loafers and negative thinkers, may you begin to muster the courage and drive to strive for sterling and mind blowing performance in Jesus name.
