Choose your Friends Wisely.

January 4, 2024

life hacksby Napoleon Hill

If you don’t want your life to be “messed up,” don’t fool around with those who have messed up theirs.

It is a peculiarity of human relationships that it is virtually impossible for one individual to have a lasting positive influence upon members of a group of negative thinkers. Usually, it works the other way. You cannot maintain a positive, productive attitude if you spend all your time with negative people. Those who have wrecked their own lives (and usually blame their misfortune on others) are not the kind of people who will help you achieve success in your own life.

Choose your friends and associates carefully, and refrain from complaints about your job, your company, or any individual. Spend your time with positive, ambitious people who have a plan for their lives. You will find that their optimism is infectious.

    This is probably the most important concept to understand if you want to move up the corporate ladder. You certainly need friends that will help you become more succesful, not get jealous and drag you down. I’ve taken this idea a step further. You should build a team of career supporters that help you manage how people see you, especially those influential managers. This team based approach can help you overcome today’s challenges, especially those ever-so-difficult people issues. This concept will be released this year in my book “Blitz the Ladder.” You can see more at
