I have heard that you can tell how successful you will be five years from now by the friends you have and the books you read. Look around at the folk you hang out with; are they encouraging you to grow or discouraging you from growing. If they are reading and growing then chances are you will too. If they aren’t doing the things necessary to change and grow then chances are you aren’t either. I used to tell my students that if I want to know all about you; all I have to do is check out your friends. The old saying ‘birds of a feather, flock together,’ is so true. Do a quick check of your surroundings; are you pecking with the chickens or are you flying with the eagles?
