“The key is to keep company only with people who uplift you, whose presence calls forth your best.“
Who are the people in your life that make you better? Who are the ones that drive and push you to be better than you would or could on your own? Do you intentionally create and foster these relationships? Do you seek out people that uplift you and prune out of your life those that hold you back?
Life is all about the relationships that we have with other people. We will be a product of the time we spend with them and they will have great influence over our actions and choices.
Think of the relationships you have as a well-designed garden. In order to maximize the beauty one must cultivate and care for the plants with great diligence. This means planting new ones and removing or pruning out the dead or dying plants. Are there certain relationships you need to nurture? How about pruning? Are there any you need to remove all together?
