With less than 48 hours left in the year 2018, I have a simple and meaningful message to you, my friends and family.

If you take a piece of rotten fruit and place it beside perfectly good fruit…What eventually happens is the mold from the rotten fruit spreads over to the good fruit and both end up in bad condition.

The mold from the rotten fruit spreads over to the good fruit and both end up in bad condition. Simular things happen when you surround yourself with people who do not build you up. You become just like them…

My advice to you, is some given to me a long time ago., and that is to Surround Yourself With Good People: It’s important to note that “good” does not mean similar. Too much of the same thing can inhibit growth.
You should aim to have diversity in the relationships with others.

Lastly, surround yourself with people that will inspire you to be a better person, provide you with motivation to achieve your goals, empower you to make the changes you need to succeed and cheer on your success.

Happy New Year –
