You don’t need a fortune teller or a crystal ball. There are certain clues out there that will tell you where you’re heading, but also where the people you associate with are heading. The future is pretty clear when you stand back and take a good, hard look at a few things.
The secret of your future is hidden in plain sight: in your daily routine. What you will be, daily you are becoming. You are what you feed your mind upon. We will reap what we sow.
Where focus goes, energy flows, and business grows. What is your driving passion? That’s what will ultimately determine your decisions and results.
“You will be the same person in five years as you are today except for the people you meet and the books you read” ~ Charlie “Tremendous” Jones. Those with whom you choose to spend most of your time will have a great effect on you.
Here are some pointers when choosing your company:
- Those who are concerned with being accepted, popular, or with what others say or think, and are afraid of “offending” others should be avoided like the plague. They are probably politically correct, as well – and that’s a cancer.
- People who “multitask” seldom do anything right and are prone to procrastination, excuses, and mistakes.
- Procrastination in itself is a red flag.
- People who show up late on a regular basis and refuse to commit until the last minute, hoping something better will appear, are unreliable. Avoid them.
- Those who continually fall for the latest scams, like Cryptocurrencies, MLM, the “Gifting Program,” and online, get-rich-quick-schemes are dangerous. They are generally mercenary, desperate, and disloyal.
- Those who talk about themselves all the time and never ask about you are selfish and not good people to be in business with.
- Those who make excuses or blame others for their bad choices should be avoided.
On a personal basis, I judge people unworthy of my company if they are addicted to any substance, including food, and other issues which I won’t reveal. Also, I will have nothing to do with Liberals or those who have been brainwashed to believe that we’re “all the same.”
Define your mission, make sure it’s aligned with your passion, skills, strengths, interests, and values, and stick to it. Persevere. Take no interest in what others say or think, unless they’re on your team.
