Choose Friends Who Dream Big, But Don’t Compete with Them. Friends who make big plans for themselves will push you to make big plans for yourself. Spend more time with those people. On the other hand, friends who think small will discourage your big dreams because frankly, no one likes being left behind. Spend less time with those people. But don’t EVER compare where you are today to where other people are. We all have our own timeline. We all have our own luck. Admire the success of your friends. Emulate it if you can. But don’t be jealous of it. Jealousy is the fastest way to lose the people you want to be closest to.
