2012 I believe will bring new things in new ways with new expectations. I recently heard someone tell me that it is important that we don't make people (or things) our "priority" that make us an "option." I thought about this for several days and it really hit me. When I was having lunch with a friend and I shared this saying with him he said, "do you know who said that?" I responded no! He said Colin Powell. Thank you PAT!
Of course knowing my personality I had to go and look this up. When I went to google this is what I found. The less you associate with some people, the more your life will improve. Any time you tolerate mediocrity in others, it increases your mediocrity. An important attribute in successful people is their impatience with negative thinking and negative acting people. As you grow, your associates will change. Some of your friends will not want you to go on. They will want you to stay where they are. Friends that don't help you climb will want you to crawl. Your friends will stretch your vision or choke your dream. Those that don't increase you will eventually decrease you. Never make someone a priority when you are only an option for them. Excellence is not an exception, it is a prevailing attitude!" Thank you Mr. Powell.
