HOW TO KNOW IF YOU ARE IN BAD COMPANY

One should always watch out for the obvious signs showing that you are indeed in bad company. It is particularly necessary if you are always working hard to become a better person but come to the realization that something is pulling you down it’s you who have to make that conscious decision to choose who will be influencing you.

Don’t forget that it’s better to be alone than be spending your time with those who doesn’t serve you any good.

Look out for the following signs:

  1. It is only when they need you or when it is convenient for them that they make time for you. Thus, the friendship only brings benefits to them. These types of friends are a bad company to you.
  2. They derail you from reaching your goals – Someone who continually discourages you from attaining your goals is undoubtedly a bad influence.
  3. They discredit your abilities-If you allow the not so well intended people to define your abilities and dreams, they will hold you back and bring negativity in your life.
  4. Those who shape your attitude in a bad manner – Avoid the toxic friends who always complain about everything. Surround yourself with those people who make you become a better person and not those who make you look like a victim.
  5. They constantly try to change you to suit their needs – A true friend will always love and accept you just the way you are. He or she will never drag you down by being judgmental; instead, he or she will always love and accept you for who you are.

It is especially difficult to let go of toxic friendships but if you want to become a better you, then it is very necessary.

THE BEST IS STILL WITHIN YOU!

You Are A Leader And Don’t Even Know It: See Why

You have within you the ability to lift someone else up.

You may not have given a title but if you fall into what John Quincy Adams says here, “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” Does your action inspire others?

Well, do you take responsibility for your actions even when things don’t go as plan? A leader is someone who takes full responsibility for all his or her actions. They don’t pass the buck unto someone else when things don’t go right and take all the praise when things do go smoothly. 

“All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another, and regardless of how much you blame him, it will not change you.” -Wayne Dyer

Are you an optimistic person even when you are challenged? A leader is someone who must realize that it is not what happen but how they react to what happen that matters most. If you can help others to see the bigger picture in a challenging situation you are a leader. People want others who can remain positive despite faced with challenges.

“Pessimism leads to weakness, optimism to power.” –William James

Do you have an open mind? A leader who is open-minded does not limit his or herself to what they already know. A leader knows that they are work in progress. 

Life is about learning, continuous learning.

Do you show respect to all people despite the position they hold in life? If you are able to treat other people with respect even if they are not able to offer you anything, you are a leader.

Kindness is strength.

Are you approachable? It is a good quality to have and being approachable will make you a more effective leader. Why, the people around you will not be in fear to share ideas or concern with you. Leaders should be welcoming!

Be the kind of person you want to meet.

It’s not so hard to be a leader and you can lead from where you are. You don’t need a fancy title or an office, all you need is you and you too can be a leader.

Be an encourager and that is something we ALL can do.

It’s your turn, go an fuel someone’s DREAM today.

IT IS POSSIBLE TO GO BEYOND LIMITATIONS. IT MAY NOT BE EASY, BUT IT IS POSSIBLE.
