If you want to be an eagle – don’t hang round the chickens. How does that statement help us to achieve what we want?
Well, if you have goals and you want to be successful, the last thing you want to do is hang around negative people. The people who will say to you, you can’t do that, it won’t work, don’t be silly etc. These people are toxic and they won’t help you going forward. They generally want to see you lose. Why, because they are scared of success, why should their friends be successful? So have a read of this poem and keep a copy of it on your desk.
Chickens Can’t Fly
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
and easier to endure.
Remember what your elders used to say,
“Birds of a feather flock together.”
If you’re an eagle, don’t hang around chickens:
Chickens Can’t Fly!
