FAMILY & FRIENDS*
The quality of your life is in direct proportion to the quality of your relationships.
– Anthony Robbins
If you associate with turkeys you will never fly with eagles.
– Brian Tracy
One of my mentors has continually reinforced the principle that it doesn’t matter where you go in life, what you do…it’s who you have beside you. Most times we don’t choose our family, yet these persons, who care most for us, usually provide the experiential laboratory for what works and what doesn’t in human relationships. Nurturing and supporting these relationships are key components to our sense of Responsibility and Service.
We do have choice in choosing our friends. Making good choices is one of the most important things we can do. The choices we make and how we cultivate and care for these relationships largely determine the success and joy that we experience.
As implied above, “If you always live with those that are lame, you yourself will learn to limp.” Conversely if you surround yourself with persons of integrity, industry, and compassion you will most likely become an active member of a powerful and successful group.*Also in this 3.11 compilation are chapters on Service, Thankfulness, and Spirit
