“He who walks with wise men will be wise, But the companion of fools will be destroyed.”
An amazing thing happens when you choose to walk with someone, either you adjust your pace to theirs or they adjust their pace to yours! When it comes to enhancing your spiritual, emotional, and financial success, there are very few things you can do that are more powerful than choosing the people with whom you associate.
Your associations can breed success or they can breed failure, they can breath life to dreams and ideas, or they can bring death to motivation, drive, and initiative. Spiritually speaking, when God wants to bless you He usually puts a person in your life. When Satan wants to curse you, he puts a person in your life. The choice is yours, chose your associates wisely!
It’s human nature to walk with those who are of like character. This occurs because of the fellowship process. When we fellowship with others, an exchange occurs. Depending upon the level of the relationship, we exchange our thoughts, ideas, emotions, and desires.
When those with whom we relate to are of the same nature, that exchange brings a level of comfort because there is nothing required. But if that exchange is with someone of a different nature, the exchange becomes difficult. The burden of the psychic weight to adjust causes discomfort. To ease the discomfort one of three things happen: you adjust to them, they adjust to you, or you part company.
So if you want to be wise and successful, seek out the company of the wise and successful. If you want to break the cycle of failure and unproductivity from reoccurring in your life, examine your associates carefully. Who is feeding your weakness? Who is comforting your mediocre performance? Who is stirring your imagination? Your imagination, needs the stimulation, of the association with those who are experiencing success in what you desire.
Cultivate positive relationships, regulate all others, and put the Law of Association to work for you.
