5 Reasons You Want to Have the Right Friends In Your Corner
In boxing when both opponents go to the sidelines to recuperate, they have their entourage to encourage, uplift and ensure their stability. You are a boxer in the rough game of life and your entourage should be just as strong. If there was someone apart of a boxer’s team that didn’t contribute to getting them getting that belt I can guarantee that person wouldn't be there for much longer. You should be just as selective and critical about your entourage, especially if you want to achieve the belt and become a heavy weight in life. (of course I mean that in the most figurative way possible, because we all wanna be snatched and tight…not overweight). So if this boxing analogy wasn’t enough reason to be more picky about who you allow into your circle perhaps some further explanation will.
If nothing else treat your circle like you would treat your weave: selective of the quality, keep it tight and take extra care to keep it healthy. No matter how many times it is debated, the people you hang around not only influence you but also reflect you. With the right people by your side you can go nowhere but up because they won’t let you fall by the way side. They know the value of vision. They know the value of purpose and they know the value of you and will never let you forget it. Drake said it best, “its good to make it, better when your people make it with you.”
