“Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers and thinkers, but most of all, surround yourself with those who see the greatness within you, even when you don’t see it yourself.”—Edmund Lee
We absorb influences from our surroundings (our culture, other culture with whom we come into contact) and try to become ourselves through all we take in. It becomes part of our personality.
It takes courage to translate influences into something that is conducive for our personal growth. What you’re today, a part of it is heavily influenced by family members, friends and so on. Learn to channel your influences into a positive stream of deeds.
A positive attitude toward life help us to value and appreciate ourselves. Just relieve yourself of the weight of negative thoughts for the sake of your soul. It pushes one into the abyss of darkness. A path may at first seems difficult to tread but it would go a long way toward a successful way of life.
