Excerpt from Acts of Faith by Iyanla Vanzant
A friend is a person who dislikes the same people you do. – Anonymous
Don’t hang out with people who are where you don’t want to be. Your friends and the environment reflect what you really feel about yourself. Winners hang out with winners. Losers hang out with losers. When you are on the move, you need people and an environment that supports and encourages your dream. You won’t find that among people that are helpless and hopeless. You won’t find support for goals among people who whine and complain. You must know and believe that that there are people waiting for you in the places you want to be. They will nurture support and encourage you to keep moving. People you know may not always support your growth. For you to move on means to leave them behind. It also means that you prove what they claim to be impossible is definitely possible.
