Who do you call friends, who are those around you, the few people who make up your circle, what are they doing, what do they offer? All these and more questions are a major requirement to determine the possible future. When the Bible says "Show me your friend and I'll the you who you are" it wasn't lying, no not for a second. To a greater extent your association has enough to impact and influence your life with. Sequel to whatever you aim and desire for yourself, then your friends has to share same vision or better still be already capable of helping you with it.
For example the matter of wealth, wealth is one of the major cause of friendship switch, one moment you see someone cut ties with people he or she knew formerly and starts moving with another, its majorly as a result of money search, the next possible reason can then be relationship pursuit, maybe then followed by health reasons, but let's stick with the most common as well as the most interesting reason of them all, money reasons.
Everyone needs money, you don't have to care about it, life on its own has made money a major requirement for us all to have, most hours of the day for grown ups is always filled with getting that thing called money, as so if there is a better offer, who wouldn't jump to it, wouldn't you? Meanwhile the most common means is through the help of a Friend. Friends from time immemorial has been the raising ladder of others. Have you ever been helped by a friend, have you ever helped a friend.
Some people source of feeding today can be linked to a friends help. May be a job link was sent to you by a friend, or the use of veto power to place you in a paying position, some have also been giving capital by a capable Friend and this has become the turning point for them henceforth. Family is no doubt the best option because that way you don't really feel indebted to anyone, my father or mother's money is mine already, so I don't feel shy to receive it, but from a friend, I will feel like I owe you bro, or you can always count on me sis.
For most of us whose parents didn't prepare millions already or a company space, we have to find it by other means, and one of the best available means is no doubt by association, meeting new people with great initiative, great minds, with good connections, that way we would can be helped. The world is created in such a way that there must be someone who knows a way, there would always be someone who has an answer to that tasking situation, if you can locate them and they are kind enough to let you in, that matter is resolved.
However People have missed it by taking this means too serious that they cut ties with the people from their past for no good reason, if they were bad influence, like they lavish, or are always getting to trouble or likely to implicate you then cutting ties from them would be a good option, but situation where its just because they are poor, then you think nothing good can come out and cut ties, that isn't smart, humans are dynamic, therefore best technique is to be at peace with everyone, just be nice and still follow the plan, cut off people that draw you back and not because they are unfortunate now.
Mindset is the fastest way of picking your association, how do they think, what is the joy giver, how do they truly feel towards you? Finding people who genuinely wants you to succeed is a blessing, its not easy to come by. Getting someone who is ready to open up his means of wealth for little or no reason for you, is someone worth praying for. That is kindness extraordinary, cause the normal man wants to be on top, while others are under, its more of a natural feeling, but finding someone who is high already and ready to raise you too, hold such person tight, and be grateful.
Most especially we also have got to be useful to attract great minds, no one wants a parasite, what do you do, what do you bring to the table, are you also a fighter or you just need to be feed. Groom yourself to be worthy of greatness, the Bible also says "See a man diligent in whatever he does, he would be in a gathering of great people" , so we also have a role to play, rather than seek to find a rich friend.
Nevertheless, God first guys, good association is a smart choice, but God can make it easier, moreover a good relationship with God is the best connection open to any man.
