If you want to be successful, you must choose your association wisely. For you are an average of the five people you spend most of your time with. Stories of many successful persons reveals association as a major determinant of success.

As the old saying goes, “Birds of a feather flock together.” If you want to be rich, it’s important to be friends with the right people. Many people will find that, as they progress, the friendships that they had before also change.Having a company of people who do not share your values, dreams, and goals is highly detrimental to your success. While you can’t control your friends, you can control who you’re friends with. And if you want to be successful, it’s important to choose your friends carefully. The following are a few short tips on how to do so.


Do not be tempted to choose friends solely based on financial statements, status or affluence. Rather, search from those from whom you can learn and make them your friends. This is because a person is either adding to you or removing from you. No one ever leaves you the same. Thus, the first attribute to search for in a person you intend to associate with should be what you can lean for them.

For example, if you want to be a successful entrepreneur, you it is advisable that you associate yourself with successful Entrepreneur. However you also need to be sure that these people share the same (or at least similar) ideas of money with you

Also, you need the association of people, e.g someone of the same religion, with whom you share similar ideas which may not necessarily teach you entrepreneurship, but adds values which make you a better person in your pursuit of success.


There would always be people who do not believe in your dreams. They would always try to talk you out of deal. Their fear holds them back and they want to hold you back too.

Don’t listen to poor or frightened people. Being successful is as much about mindset as it is about knowledge. Poor and frightened people have a poor mindset and are always complaining about how the sky is falling. They are chicken littles who will always tell you what is wrong with your business or investment idea. They are motivation killers.



Life is too short to spend time with people who don’t help you move forward. In your journey to success, travel with those who have gone ahead of you This is because you would have the privilege of insider information. This is highly valuable as success is all about information.

Insider information is that tiny little detail that is not yet popular but guarantees you access and helps you gain speed in your success journey.
Trust me, you need insider information. You want to hear about the next big boom, get in, and get out before the next bust. The sooner you know good information, the better. And you will not hear about good information from poor friends.

If you want to be success, do the intelligent thing and be friends with people who are rich and who have good information to share.
