25th October 2019

It should come as no surprise to my faithful, beautiful, and intelligent readers that Good Decision Making and I have not always seen eye-to-eye. Take my former criminal career for instance. It was all about impulse and not intellect. While it was sufficient to get me my own blog, it also got me 20 years in the can. But it doesn't matter if you're a florist, a pharmacist, or a literate felon, there are some universal truths that apply to all of us.

I was talking about this and about how I don't like negative people (in general) to my Hawaiian friend Clinton Mau (14 yrs for meth distribution on the island of Oahu). He has the same philosophy as I do. So I decided to articulate some of my hard-learned wisdom and blueprint for the rest of my life, both back here, and also out there. It's not my normal blog, per se, but hopefully you'll get something out of my prison wisdom. Here goes...

Tell me who your best friends are, and I will tell you who you are. 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 our face, but what we are really like is shown by the kinds of friends we choose and the way that we treat others. The simple but true fact of life is that we tend to become like the people that we closely associate with-for both the good and the bad. The less that you associate with some people, the more that your life will improve. Put kindness out into the world, and kindness will come back to you. Seriously.

It seems that an important attribute in successful people is their intolerance with impatience and negative acting people. As you grow, your associates will change, and hopefully, you will become a better person. Some of your associates will not want to go on this journey with you. They want you to stay where you are and to be defined by all of the things in your past.

Friends that don't help you climb, will want you to crawl. Your friends can help stretch your vision or help choke your dreams. Those that aren't part of the solution will eventually be defined as being part of the problem.

Consider this: Never receive counsel from someone who's unproductive. Never discuss your problems with someone who's incapable of contributing to the solution, because it seems that those who never succeed themselves are always the first to tell you how you should do things. Not everyone has a right to speak on your life, that is unless you put them there. Never seek the opinion (or adulation) of fools. You are certain to get the worst of the bargain when you solicit ideas from the wrong person. Don't follow someone who is clearly not going anywhere.

With some people you spend an evening; with others you invest it. So be careful where you stop to inquire for directions as you navigate the road of life.

Wise is the person who fortifies their life with the right friendships. And in difficult moments? Seek God; In quiet moments? Worship God; In painful moments? Trust God. And in every moment thank God for your life, no matter who your God may be.

The bottom line of this blog is that it's better to be alone than in the wrong company. Something is not necessarily better than nothing.

So says the yogi Bank Blogger, Jeffrey P. Frye.
