What makes someone a “good” person to invest your time with? “Good people” are heroes in disguise, they aren’t saints, and they don’t need to be. They might spend their winter holidays helping others who need the extra help, or they simply may encourage you to create a more healthier lifestyle for yourself.

– Karl Marx

All we need to do is consider how other people make us feel. Evaluating the people we spend the most time with; this allows us to see if they add something constructive to, or subtract from, our lives. We will find that the moment we are honest with ourselves about our own feelings, the more candid we can be with others about how they make us feel. [ some people needs to hear it ] This may entail some drastic changes to our life, it can bring about a personal transformation that can truly empower us. Since the decision to live our lives more truthfully and honestly will help us making our lives be full of greater happiness in the long run.

The key is finding the people that are good for you. Like attracts like. You must give off positive vibes and be confident in how you portray yourself and your motto. BE YOURSELF; you attract better people for your life when they know the whole and real YOU; the whole you. This all can lead you to the people that are right for you.

Choose your friends with care, they truly create the atmosphere in which you will either thrive or wilt. Give everyone the opportunity to be a friend, but share your dreams and goals only with those who value them as much as you do. It’s worth the time it may take to consciously surround yourself with people who can create greatness for themselves as well as those around them.
