If you call on your friends only when you need something, you will soon find yourself without friends.
There is a great deal of wisdom in the old saw, “If you want friends, be a friend.” Friendship means giving without expecting anything in return. Busy, successful people are not searching for new friends. If you want to be their friend, you must make the effort to befriend them. Let them know that you are interested in them as people, not in what they can do for you, and you may find that you have made a true and loyal friend. N.HILL #ThinkAndGrowRich
A Napoleon Hill Thought…
There are many things you cannot control, but you can control the only things that really matter: your mind and your attitude. External forces have very little to do with success. Those who program themselves for success find a way to succeed even in the most difficult of circumstances. Solutions to most problems come from one source and one source alone: yourself. Living life to the fullest is a lot like shooting the rapids in a rubber raft. Once you’ve made the commitment, it’s difficult to change your mind, turn around, and paddle upstream to placid waters. But it’s the excitement and adventure that make it all worthwhile. If you never make the attempt, you may never know the depths of despair, but neither will you experience the exhilaration of success.
Examine most carefully the things you desire most.
Far too many people spend more time planning their weekends than their lives. Then they suddenly realize that life has passed them by and they weren’t even aware it was happening. When you intently study what you most desire in life, you begin to focus your mind and concentrate your energy upon that which you wish to achieve. One of the great advantages of having a definite goal for your life is that it helps you prioritize your activities. When your major purpose is clear in your mind, it is unnecessary to analyze each individual situation. You know automatically whether your actions will move you toward your goal or away from it. You can then use all of your resources — time, money, and energy — to best advantage.
In the previous story the unexpected was about to be unfolded right before my eyes. I was only looking for love in a toxic relationship that was breaking down fast as if there was no tomorrow left in my world. What I thought was giving everything that I had to give to my family but it wasn’t good enough in her mind. Well we started to argue more and more everyday like two wild animals fighting over the last piece of meat left on the bone. There where times that I wanted her to go back where she came from and never ever come back to my country. Well this wasn’t fare away from the truth we had a furious argument with our young child watching his parents being so abusive towards each other. The last thought out of my mouth was why don’t you just get out and go back where you belong. She said I don’t understand what you just said, and I repeated in a slower pace voice “do you understand English I want you to leave me alone” well she started to hit me in the face with so much anger that her hand started swell up every time she hit me. I turn to my son and said this is how much your mummy hates me, what did I do so wrong to deserve this kinda abuse I repeated over and over again. The next day they were gone to the airport on the next flight out. I thought to myself good riddens to this toxic relationship now. “BUT THIS WASN’T OVER BY A LONG SHOT” There was more to be told in the next few years that you won’t believe what happened nexted.

This is an important message in your life to repeat over and over again every single day.
