Who you associate with says a lot about who you are.
Who you hang out with will determine where you go in life.
That doesn't mean you have no choice about who you are or where you are going.
It means you made your choice and you will have to live with the consequences of your choices you make.
If you want to be HONEST you will naturally choose to hang out with people who are honest. Because if you can't trust a word they say you can't honestly say they are honestly good for you.
If you want to have a positive outlook you need to surround yourself with people who inspire you to have a positive outlook. Because if they only see things in a negative way they will have a negative affect on your way of thinking.
If you want to have a positive outcome you have to have a positive outlook and surround yourself with people who will have a positive impact on your outlook.
Every choice you make matters. Choosing who to surround yourself with determines what choices you will have.
If something or even someone is not good for you then make sure you make a choice to get away from whatever it is because choosing to do nothing different is still a choice you make.
It is better to swim alone then to be surrounded by sharks swimming around you.
