I will distance myself from negative people
I will distance myself from negative people. I will not pretend to be patient for lies, hypocrisy, “academic arrogance,” cynicism, or excessive criticism, and I will stop accepting incomplete tasks, mediocrity, extremisms, poor morals, laziness, excuses, procrastination, and double standards. I’ve learned that I need to surround myself with people who reflect the person I want to be, that challenge and energize me, people I’m proud to know, who make my day a little brighter simply by being in it.
“Surround yourself with people who are going to lift you higher.” — Oprah Winfrey
