I received the following in an email today. Subconsciously, I knew this but haven't quite had it spelled out in black and white like this. Thanks Susan, for sharing!
A network is all about people. Therefore, the most important thing is to choose the right people for personal relationships or professional team building. Why?
Negative people together: They create problems and harm each other, or they make things worse because they spend energy fighting each other and focusing on the negative.
Positive and Negative people together: They create frustration. There is no progress because negative people drag positive people down.
Positive people together: They create extraordinary things for real success. They develop quality teamwork by respecting, understand, supporting and caring for each other. They do their best so they break their own limitations.
Stupid people together: They make nothing work. They can only move backwards because they do stupid things all the time.
Intelligent and stupid people together: They can improve nothing because intelligent people become babysitters for stupid people.
Intelligent and Positive people together: They can do anything and everything. Nothing is impossible.
***The term Stupid People has nothing to do with academic education. Stupid means two things: People who have the ability but are lazy, or people who stop learning to improve themselves.
Moral of the story: Be positive and intelligent, and find positive and intelligent people.
All the best,
