Judge every opportunity as a business transaction. If the person or opportunity helps you – It can be qualified as an 𝐚𝐬𝐬𝐞𝐭. If the person or opportunity cannot help you – It is a 𝐥𝐢𝐚𝐛𝐢𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐲.
𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐲 𝐚𝐫𝐞𝐚 – Some liabilities are assets because they teach you a lesson, and some assets are a liability in disguise. You will only learn this with experience.
I do not believe in money; I do believe in 𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐧𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐨𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐬. And as all others are you as well. Please treat the other versions of you in the following context:
My 𝐭𝐫𝐮𝐞 𝐟𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐝𝐬 – These as the friends that I know will never take away my energy, always supply me with more. They will never ask for my money and will never hurt my feelings on purpose. These are friends for life.
My 𝐈𝐠𝐧𝐨𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐭 𝐟𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐝𝐬 – These are my crab friends, another word could be unaware or unconscious they are still ignorant about what they are. You are them, and they do not see that because they keep stealing your energy, keep distracting you from what you want to do. They bring you down every moment they can do so, and they are not aware that they are doing it. Do not feel any resentment of any kind against them as they are trying to help you the best way they know how to, they simply do not know what they are doing to you.
My 𝐛𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐟𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐝𝐬 – These are the friends that teach you the harshest lessons, these are the people that are your coaches, your mentors, your family (even though they could fall in the ignorant category at certain times ). They love you, but they are honest with you and they want you to succeed. Once you reach the level of your best friends, then you can make them your true friends.
This system has a gray area as well, if your true friend has a bad night and is requesting attention, they might fall in the category of an ignorant friend. Or maybe they attended an amazing life-changing moment, and they could become a best friend… 𝐉𝐮𝐬𝐭 𝐝𝐨 𝐧𝐨𝐭, 𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫. 𝐅𝐨𝐫𝐠𝐞𝐭 𝐰𝐡𝐨 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐭𝐫𝐮𝐞 𝐟𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐝𝐬 𝐚𝐫𝐞, 𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐧 𝐚𝐭 𝐜𝐞𝐫𝐭𝐚𝐢𝐧 𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐞𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐲 𝐜𝐚𝐧 𝐛𝐞 𝐢𝐠𝐧𝐨𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐭.
