“People are like dirt. They can either nourish you and help you grow as a person or they can stunt your growth and make you wilt and die.”
I’ve always loved this quote. It’s an ancient (around 400BC) permission slip to free yourself of people, situations, bad work environments, relationships, competitions, whatever it is holding you back from reaching your potential. Isn’t there a quote about burning bridges? If you burned it, then you shouldn’t have crossed it in the first place? Yeah, that’s it.
Surround yourself with people that make you feel good. that make you a better person. that are authentic. that are real. Find the good soil.
Pluck the weed.
