Be careful the environment you choose for it will shape you; be careful the friends you choose for you will become like them. – W. Clement Stone

Tell me who your best friends are, and I will tell you who you are. If you run with the wolves, you will learn how to howl, but if you associate with eagles, you will learn how to soar to great heights.

I have found that it is better to be alone than in the wrong company. When you surround yourself with the right kind of people, you enter into the God- ordained power of agreement.

A simple but true fact is that you become like those with whom you closely associate – for the good and the bad. The less you associate with some people, the more your life will improve. Proverbs 27:19 says, “A mirror reflects a man’s face, but what he is really like is shown by the kind of friends he chooses.”

Have contact with the right people on a regular basis with men and women of strong faith, people who will make you a better person when you are around them. Let these be the ones that see your gifts and can correct you in a constructive, loving way.

Two can accomplish more than twice as much as one, for the results can be much better. If one falls, the other pulls him up, but if a man falls when he is alone, he’s in trouble. And one standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer; three is even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken. Ecclesiastes 4:9–10,12
