This is a question I’ve had to ask myself in order to frankly assess where my life is heading. I am a big believer of Proverbs 13:20 that says “He that walketh with wise men shall be wise; but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.”
Your inner circle is highly important! The people you keep close to you, the people you discuss your life with, the people you seek advice from play very important roles in how your life plays out in future. If your circle is filled with lazy gossips who do not take initiative or have vision, then your life will most likely head in that direction. Even if you want to be different, they will weigh you down. If your inner circle is filled with people with vision, people who take initiative, people who encourage themselves in the face of adversity, and take risks to make their lives better, then you are on the path to success.
Who’s in your inner circle? Who are you confiding in? Who are you listening to? Your future will be affected by those you choose to associate with now. Choose wisely!
