Keeping good company
The adage goes that we are the sum of the five people we spend the most time with. Do you know who that makes you? I recently read somewhere that the secret to success is keeping good company.
To keep good company I would argue that one has to be good company. How do you know if you’re good company? Well, would you like to spend time with you?
If your fridge is empty, you can’t help others to stock up. Only once you’ve filled up your (metaphorical) fridge can you be the full fridge you’d like to be for others. Being good to yourself allows and enables you to be good towards others.
After all, we are a direct reflection of the food we eat, the amount we sleep and the company we keep.
