We humans learn a lot through imitation both willingly and unwilling. So think twice before you call someone a friend because whether you like it or not your peers will reflect your personality and they slowly might just change it too.
And remember if your friends don't help you in the journey of growth then they aren't really your friends. They are just people you pass the time with. And trust me we don't have enough time to pass. Strange how people are stingy with their money when in reality they should be stingy with thier time and energy very cause these are costly resources you can never earn back... #therightdecisions , #chosewisely , #humans , #friends , #time , #stingywithtime , #sunnah , #propheticsayings , #socail , #socialinfluence , #peers , #peerpressure
Something I’ve never understood, not in all my days, is the concept of asking someone if you can ask them a question. You know, like in some quiet scene in a movie when a character says to another, “Can I ask you a question?” …. long pause, long pause…. “Yes”. Then the character asks the question. That’s never made sense to me. In asking if you can ask a question, you are already asking a question, so why not skip that part and just ask the question? What if it ever went like this: “Can I ask you a question?” …. long pause, long pause…. “No.”? Everything would suddenly turn awkward, causing who knows what sort of catastrophe.
People have said this to me. “Todd.”, “Yeah?”, “Can I ask you a question?”, (in my mind) “YOU JUST DID! JUST ASK IT!”, (out loud) “Of course.”. Now, with texting, people do this. It’s so bizarre to me, but the strangest is when I get that initial text, “Can I ask you a question?”. Then I text back, “Why, of course you can. (smile emoji, little heart and happy hands emoji)”. Then they don’t text for HOURS!!!!!! A long time later I get the question that was asked if they could ask it hours ago. What is that? That’s so weird to me! Are they wanting me to fish for their question? Are they looking to provoke another side of me with a reply that says, “Well what the hell is your question?!?”? You could have simply asked the question in the first place and saved the atmosphere from waisted words taking up satellite energy and avoiding such an awkward waiting period.
Oh well, but here’s a little dude, or dudette, whom I met whilst on a hike the other day. Names’ Sal.
With any partnership, people working at cross purposes will have difficulty achieving their goals. Ulterior motives drain the energy out of any endeavor by splitting it between appearance and undertone. If we enter into a partnership where we feel a lack of trust, our energy will be divided between our work and protecting our interests. When a partnership is based on mutual respect and agreement on a common goal, all the energy can be directed positively, accomplishing more with less effort. When we are willing to reject partnerships that require the effort of remaining constantly vigilant, we will create space for better partnerships to enter. When we declare our integrity to the world today, like minds and spirits will be drawn to us and we can focus entirely on attaining our goals together.
