The Company I Keep
I was recently at the 2011 eWomen’s International Conference in Dallas, Texas. There is so much I could say about the experience but there was one huge take away for me and that is to be aware of the company I keep. Am I keeping company with supportive, forward thinking, courageous visionaries? Or am I keeping company with negative, energy draining complainers? Les Brown was one of the keynote speakers at the conference and he presented it this way: Did Martin Luther King say, “I have a complaint”? NO! He had a dream and he surrounded himself with people who had that same dream. I strongly encourage you to ask yourself…what is the company I keep?
