Look for People Who Believe More in You than You Believe Yourself!
How do you choose friends? Wow. That’s a tough one. But unlike families that we don’t have a choice in, we too can choose our friends. Someone once said that we are the average of the 5 friends that we hang out with. So check it out. If your friends are all losers then, well, draw out your own conclusion.
Personally one of my criteria for choosing friends is to find friends who see more potential in you than you see in yourself. People who support you and your dreams. People who believe in you more than you do at times.
In the same token, I try my best to believe in better versions of my friends. I try to support their dreams, even when sometimes this support is not reciprocated (well crap like this happens, let’s not be surprised). I may not be successful all the time but I try.
And one thing is sure. When you believe in your friends more than they do themselves, that belief is like killer energy that recharges them and pushes them forward. I’ve noticed that people rise up to the level of your expectations.
On my end, I tend to therefore associate more with people who also believe in my dreams. After all pursuing your goals is already tough. Why would you hang out with negatrons and deadbeats. Supportive friends are the friendships that are refreshing.
If you look at your circle and you see that this ain’t what is there, maybe you need to look for a new circle. But if supportiveness is the behavior of your circle, guard it with your freaking life because this tribe is going to help propel you to where you need to go!
