Don’t spend major time with minor people. If there are
people in your life that continually disappoint you, break promises,
stomp on your dreams, too judgmental, have different values and don’t
have your backing during difficult times…that is not a friend.

To have a friend, be a friend. Sometimes in life as you
grow, your friends will either grow or go.
Surround yourself with people who reflect your values, goals
interests and lifestyle.

When I think of any of my successes,
I am thankful to the universe from whom all blessings flow, and to my
family and friends that enrich my life.  Over the years my
phone book has changed because I changed for the better.

At first you think you’re going to be alone,
but after a while new people show up in your
life that make your life so much sweeter.
Remember what your elders used to say, “Birds of a feather flock together.”
If you’re an eagle, don’t hang around chickens:

One of the issues with Negotiating – is that many people are chicken to ask. Chicken to push the envelope as they don’t like upsetting people or just need to be liked. Negotiating causes conflict. But of course to get the best deal you need to have a little conflict.
