“The future is only as bright as you make it.  Add those who reflect the light and remove those who dim it.”


~Michael Baisden


Our effectiveness and happiness is critically impacted by who and what we choose to associate with.  Few are strong enough to offset the impact of negative people and situations for any length of time.  While negatives will always be a part of the human existence, it is in our power to choose the vast majority of people we surround ourselves with and the experiences we have.  When it comes to people, this can be complicated, but the power is still there.  Remove people from your life that do not positively add to your effectiveness and happiness.  Add those who do! 


It takes awareness, and it takes courage.  But if you are serious about creating a life of joy and fulfillment, you must be intentional on whom to take with you on the journey.
