I love this quote: "Set your life on fire. Seek those that fan your flame"!
My translation to that is this: dont be hanging out with people always wanting to pull you down or make you look bad. The prerequisite to hangout out with any person is that they nourish and inspire you. They feed your flame! Look around you..who are the people you call friends? Who are the ones you text most often and talk to? Do they believe in you and support you?
For me, I have always removed those who try to bring me down. When I was in high school, all some of my closet friends did was smoke up..they sat around, did nothing but get high, joke around, play video games, and get nowhere in life! I remember a kid, 14 years old dropped out of school just to hang out with them more often..and what did any of them do? Well put it this way, they didn't discourage him from dropping out that's fore-sure. So for me, leaving this group of friends was very tuff at the time...these were my buddies and at the time I couldn't see myself not hanging out with them! But, if it wasn't for my bravely and courage at the time to walk away, I wouldn't be where I am and who I am today!
Always have a person beside you fanning your flames! Drop your phone for a second and look around you...are the ones you talk to and keep close throwing logs on your flame or pissing on it?! Thanks Will Smith for the encouragement :)
