Food For Thought: Bad company corrupts good character

💡  We all need people to guide, help, and encourage us along the path to fulfilling our visions, whether in business or life. The only thing that will change our life, business and relationships, is the level of our own standards. 

Coming from a smaller town environment where very few people supported each other and lent a helping hand when in need, I failed miserably in the early stages of my life. Yet, after moving to a bigger city and having had exposure to a wider network of people, I realised to succeed in our visions, who we associate ourselves with is vitally important. 

4 lessons for any entrepreneur to consider, especially if one is early in the journey include:

✅ Get rid of negative people who bring you down. Surround yourself with people who lift you up, lend you knowledge and help you learn from your mistakes. Raise your standards for your inner circle.

✅ Be careful of the #negative influences others may have on your #vision. It is crucial for us to guard our hearts, thoughts, attitudes, and ideas from being sabotaged by those around us. 

✅ Increase the #positiveinfluence in life and decrease the negative ones in pursuit of your goals. 

✅ Remember, wrong behaviour comes from wrong thinking, which stems from wrong beliefs and poor standards, and often this is a contamination from our surrounding environment.
