Open your eyes


During one of my conversations with my Mentor, after some while he asked me what my goals were for the reminder of the year, I answered him.

In my mind I have blown him away. He laughed and said they were too small, that I could achieve them all in a day if I know how.

Aha! Shock me sir, show me the way. That drew my attention because I thought they were big, or at least big enough.

We spoke for over an hour and it was an amazing time, I felt a mind shift, I started thinking big, King Solomon the wisest man said

“leave the company of ignorant people, and live. Follow the way of knowledge”

Upon hearing this, it began to make sense to me. Your company determines what accompanies you, so it is only wise to walk in the kind of company you will want to have their characteristics.

Walking with complainers will only make you a complainer soon enough. Wisdom cries out daily for who will receive her, but our schedules and activities make her mostly ignored and because of her reserved nature, she is easily kicked aside.

But, stupidity her lousy neighbor, ignorant and shameless, she will roam the streets day and night, persistently in your face to join her folly and she never stops.

The question now is with you, who will you follow?
