You Are The Company You Keep•

You are the company you keep. I've heard this plenty of times in my life, but really never took this line into consideration. About a year ago my mentor asked me a question that made me change my outlook on the path I was going, and where I want to go. When I answered him I knew I had to make a change, and a change immediately. I knew it was going to be difficult, to me it was either stay there or live out my dreams. So I got to living.
I slowly started drifting away from the negative crowds and more around people who had similar goals or even higher goals than I. If your around people who are not doing anything with their life most likely you'll do the same. That is perfectly fine if that is what you want to do. To a person that has goals and wants to change the world for the better. Has to change themselves first, this goes with the people you're around, your decisions, most importantly your mentality.
If everyone around you has and idea of getting a mansion and living good with no worries in the world, you can all work together to get there. If only a few think this way, there is always that one person who tells you, you cant and has a negative vibe. No one wants to be around that period. Once you are able change these things in life, things will start to become better. You are the company you keep !
