Right people

Who you spend your time with will have a great impact on what kind of life you live

There are people God has already ordained to come across our path to helps fulfill our destiny

People that inspire us, challenge us, make us better

The right people have already been lined up

But here’s the key: If you’re spending time with the wrong people, you’ll never meet the right ones

If you’re hanging around people that are not going any place, people that are dragging you down, cause you to compromise, draining your energy, then you’re going to get stuck

You can’t hang out with chickens and expect to soar with eagles

You’re going to become like the people you continually associate with

You wanna know what you’re gonna be like in 5 years? Look at your friends

If your friends are going places, have a spirit of excellence, kind, generous, courteous, then those qualities are going to rub off on you

Complainers find other complainers

That’s the saying – birds of a feather flock together

My challenge is simple, make sure you’re flocking to the right group

Victorious people associate with other victorious people

Winners hang out with winners

Happy people around other happy people

Eagles soar with other eagles

We don’t like change

We want it to be just like it was when we were hanging out, growing up together

But it’s a new day

You have children, you have parents to take care of

You have more responsibility

But just because somebody is related to you, doesn’t mean they’re connected to you

They may have your blood, but they don’t have your spirit

They may not have heard the call God put on your life

This doesn’t make them a bad person

It just means God has a different assignment for them

Maybe they’re at a different level in their growth, but they’re not right for you in this season

This is one of the hardest things we have to deal with

Letting go of people that are not supposed to be in our lives

Bottom line, don’t hold on to what God is asking you to walk away from

Another thought, you shouldn’t spend a lot of time with people that are always negative, people that are constantly discouraged, you gotta keep them cheered up, keep them fixed

Now, I’m all for helping people, I’m all for being a blessing

Sometimes we have to love people back into wholeness

But if you’re always giving and never receiving, that’s an unhealthy relationship

You need to gradually make a change
