Thoughts on Life from General Colin Powell

A friend sent this to me.  I don’t know if these are really the words of General Colin Powell, but I think they are worth sharing.

Bridging the Gap:  By General Colin Powell

General Colin Luther Powell: American Statesman and Four Star General in the United States Army, Former Secretary of State to President George W. Bush African American….
 
The less you associate with some people, the more your life will improve. Any time you tolerate mediocrity in others, it increases your mediocrity. An important attribute in successful people is their impatience with negative thinking and negative acting people. As you grow, your associates will change.. Some of your friends will not want you to go on. They will want you to stay where they are. Friends that don’t help you climb will want you to crawl.. Your friends will stretch your vision or choke your dream. Those that don’t increase you will eventually decrease you.
 
Consider this: Never receive counsel from unproductive people. Never discuss your problems with someone incapable of contributing to the solution, because those who never succeed themselves are always first to tell you how. Not everyone has a right to speak into your life. You are certain to get the worst of the bargain when you exchange ideas with the wrong person. Don’t follow anyone who’s not going anywhere.
 
With some people you spend an evening: with others you invest it. Be careful where you stop to inquire for directions along the road of life. Wise is the person who fortifies his life with the right friendships. If you run with wolves, you will learn how to howl. But, if you associate with eagles, you will learn how to soar to great heights.  “A mirror reflects a man’s face, but what he is really like is shown by the kind of friends he chooses.”
 
The simple but true fact of life is that you become like those with whom you closely associate – for the good and the bad.
 
Note: Be not mistaken. This is applicable to family as well as friends. Yes…do love, appreciate and be thankful for your family, for they will always be your family no matter what. Just know that they are human first and though they are family to you, they may be a friend to someone else and will fit somewhere in the criteria above.
 
“In Prosperity Our Friends Know Us. In Adversity We Know Our friends.”
 
“Never make someone a priority when you are only an option for them.”
 
“If you are going to achieve excellence in big things, you develop the habit in little matters. Excellence is not an exception, it is a prevailing attitude."
 
Colin Powell

What Is Your Vision?

A vision board is a collage of images, pictures and affirmations of your dreams and desires. It can also be called a dream board, treasure map or vision map. Vision boards are a great way to make you feel positive, and are helpful if you are using the law of attraction.

Follow these 7 simple steps to create your vision board:

  1. Decide the main theme of your board. It may be based on something specific you wish to accomplish or obtain, or it may be a general idea of everything that makes you happy.
  2. Find pictures that correspond with your theme, either from old magazines, photographs, or from the Internet.
  3. Print (if necessary) and cut out your pictures.
  4. Type or write some affirmations that correspond with your theme.
  5. Glue your pictures and affirmations to your poster board and pin them to your cork board.
  6. Hang your vision board in a place you will see every day.
  7. View your board at least once a day, and focus on the objects, sayings and theme of your board.
