The people who you choose to listen to are those who absorb into your mind. The conversation others have is the world they create as they see it. Why not be around those who help you and each other. Choose to be productive every day and every moment as best as you can. A lifetime commitment to being around those reaching higher by setting goals and putting in the effort is where you want to be. Moving toward where you see yourself in a positive way is far greater then going backwards. It is worth your energy and invaluable time to pursue.
