“According to research by Dr. David McClelland of Harvard, the people with whom you habitually associate are called your “reference group,” and these people determine as much as ninety-five percent of your success or failure in life.
It is not always comfortable, but it is always profitable to associate with people larger than ourselves.
People with integrity.
People who are positive.
People who are ahead of us professionally.
People who lift us up instead of knocking us down.
People who take the high road, never the low.
And above all, people who are growing.”
-John C. Maxwell
Assess, address and evaluate the individuals in your circle of friends.
The story they tell is one about you so what is the message it sends?
Are you taking the high road or taking the low?
You become like the friends that you hang with … you know.
Consider your circle of friends;
The circle's a story of "you."

“Iron sharpeneth iron;
So a man sharpeneth the countenance
Of his friend.”
Proverbs 27:17
