In your travels, you’re sure to see a lot of people doing things and wonder; do you have any real friends? This flight called life can be hard, but the quality of your journey can be improved by the company you keep. There’s a saying that “Only a true friend will say to your face what others say behind your back.”
I think this is so true. It also speaks to the reality that many people are without true friends. The reason I say this is because so many won’t tell you what you need to hear to grow and be your best self! Most people are surrounded by those who are content in allowing you to walk around looking and acting like a fool. And maybe it’s not that they haven’t tried to tell you the truth before; maybe you just don’t respond well to the truth. Maybe your reaction to truth makes people continue to lie to you. Maybe you really can’t handle the truth, so you surround yourself with people who tell you what you want to hear. The sad reality is, most people are looking for yes men, not real friends. A real friend wants you to grow and challenges you to do whatever it takes to go higher. A real friend will help you think better about yourself. A real friend loves you enough to tell you what others are afraid to tell you about yourself.
My challenge for you today is for you to ask yourself; WHO ARE MY REAL FRIENDS? Who are the people who help push me closer to my take off? Who are the people who keep me from my take off that I still call my friends? Why am I allowing them to do this to me? Am I even a friend to myself?
I guarantee you will only attract what you are. Your friends are a reflection of you. If they are all no good, maybe you need to upgrade your mentality.
Your life is happening right now and you are either enjoying it or not. Be honest, are you enjoying your life? Are you looking for other people to make you happy when you really haven’t learned to love yourself? When are you going to take responsibility for the quality of your life? Stop putting all the control in the hands of your so called friends. Be a friend to yourself and put people where they belong in your life. Destiny must take priority over history! Some people have been around for a long time and they’re partly the reason you’re still on the ramp and haven’t taken off yet. When they continue to make excuses for your stagnant mentality, they’re not being your friend. When they coddle you and make you weak; they’re actually an enemy to your success. I challenge the coachable to take control over your life and be good to yourself. Others will take your cue and see how you treat you. Once they see you’re loving to yourself, what other choice do they have but to follow suit. It’s up to you? Look outwardly or look inwardly? If you don’t love you, why do you expect others to?
