Reflections about who to spend time with

“If you wanna fly like an Eagle don’t hang out with Ducks!”


How high you fly in life will depend, in part, on who you choose to hang out with.


Not that I am judging ducks as bad people, but if you want to fly like an eagle, then spending all your time with ducks will only hold you back.


And here’s the problem with ducks…


If you let them, they can been extremely negative about your future ambitions and dreams.


So don’t let them!


Who ever got anywhere in life through negativity, cynicism and criticism? The ducks certainly didn’t!


OK, seeking advice from the experts (eagles) who have already achieved is wise and worthwhile.


But don’t ever accept criticism about your dreams and ambitions from people who themselves have not achieved.


They’ll say things like:


“You’re crazy.”
“Come back to the real world.”
“You plan is not possible.”


Who the hell are they to know this?


So use this negativity to fuel your burning desire to succeed.


And remember…


Their negativity is just a reflection of how they feel about themselves – so it’s about them really, not about you.


So my advice?


One by one, eliminate the ducks from your life (not by hiring a hitman– that would be just wrong!)


And seek out more eagles to fly with.


People who have already succeeded.
People who inspire you.
People you can learn from.
And let’s not forget energy!


You see…


Every person on this planet emits an electromagnetic field from their heart. And this field can be measured in a 5 metre radius around the person.


So ducks give off one kind of energy.
Eagles give off a whole different kind of energy.


Think about it…


Who are those people you are hang out with who drain your energy and you feel tired after spending time with them?


And who are those who give energy to your wings so after spending time with them you are flying high?


So, I’m off to find some fellow eagles to fly with, how about you?


To your success.
