Prov. 13:20 (KJV) He that walketh with wise men shall be wise; but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.
There are several instances where an average person with an average designation on an average job getting average results and earning an average pay picks up a new appointment with a better company and gets completely transformed to someone with a better attitude giving an outstanding performance with excellent results to show for it in few months!
If you want to fly with the eagles, you can’t continue to scratch with the turkeys
By continued association with optimistic, result oriented, focus driven and upwardly mobile people, the previously average individual becomes an exceptional person delivering extraordinary results!
Associations can be that powerful!
The very outcome of your life is directly linked with the people you associate with. That is why any desired major change in your life must start with a review of the kinds of people you live, work and hangout with.
Zig-Ziglar once said, ‘‘If you want to fly with the eagles, you can’t continue to scratch with the turkeys”.
Do you desire for your life to be transformed from average to exceptional? Then prayerfully review your associations today.
Lord, Your words says that he who walks with wise men shall be wise. Please position me amidst men who would sharpen me and give me the necessary push towards my destiny. Amen.
