Love everyone but associate closely with winners. This is because you are the average of the 5 people closest to you! Be warned, people rub off on you! Greatness rubs off on normal people who associate closely with great people. I believe that’s why the bible says:
“A wise man should choose his friends carefully.” – PROV 12:26
Invest deliberately in friendships that will help you succeed in life, even when it costs nothing to drift into friendships that are taking you no-where or taking you down.
PROV 13:20 (MESSAGE)
“Become wise by walking with the wise; hang out with fools and watch your life fall to pieces.”
