Can one do without friends? We all have friends, we share ideas with them, talk together, have fun and fight. Yes, that is the baseline of friendship. But, do you know that apart from you, Your Friends Can Determine Whether You Succeed Or not?
There are two things in a friendship that are the ability to “love” and the ability to “influence”. It means you are loved and you are impressed. How do your friends affect your success in life? How are they one of the biggest deciding factors in your success? let’s find out.
What kind of friends do you have?
First, what kind of friends do you have? Who do you call your best friend? There are two types of friends, good friends and bad. Many people have lost their way to success and some have even found their way to success because they keep their friends, the people they meet.
Who is your best friend? Answer carefully. Being best friends means that you find each other compatible and understanding. Analyze who is your best friend. If you don’t have a best friend Inspired To give you something positive, if the one you call your bestie has never given you positive advice, finally if your best friend has never informed and counseled you about your shortcomings, you have Not a best friend.
This quote tells us “birds of the same feather flock together”. Countless people have changed from their good nature to bad nature because of friends. One thing to note, “negative people move on with negative aura”. If your best friend is full of negativity inside and out then you will surely be affected by his negative aura.
They affect your success positively or negatively
The friends you keep can affect you either positively or negatively because your friends have the power to completely change your type of person.
Your friends influence you in this way:
- what they do indirectly affect you
- They directly influence you by teaching and mentoring you
Yes, that’s how they affect you. For example, you watch a movie and you like the way the actor walks. The question is, if you really liked the way the actor walked, wouldn’t you try to imitate the actor? of course you will.
Just as you imitate the actor, your friends can impress you with your character. The funny thing, though, is that they don’t have to teach you to do things like them. You just find yourself copying them and slowly imitating them.
An important question to ask is whether you are imitating a good friend or a bad one? If you imitate a good friend you will be good, but if you imitate a bad person you will definitely become a bad person.
Everyone wants to be successful, a good friend will always teach, enlighten and inspire you for success. A bad friend will only lead you to do bad things (smoking, drinking, fighting, jealousy, etc.).
And you must know that such things are great enemies of success and even of God. So, if you have these bad elements in your life, how will you achieve success? There is no way now!
And at the same time, they can teach and advise you directly. But, what do your friends teach you? Do they motivate you positively or teach you bad things when you ask them for advice? Many people have regretted lifelong decisions just listening to the advice of friends.
The company you keep has the power to influence and change you. Never forget that a positive influence will teach, inspire and propel you to success. Whereas a negative influence will lead you to become a bad person, change your good nature, and eventually make you regret.
