Protect your vision, not everyone wants to see it flourish

Have you realized that we throw the word friend around so loosely to the degree that we have no idea who is and who is not on our side. Human beings have a deep desire to be loved, we always want people on our side and that need which is in built can at times work against us.

To make this a little vivid let me tell you a story that you may already know. Three so called friends were thinking of the next big idea, they wanted to become rich. After months of brainstorming, drawing plans erasing them and wracking their brains on what they hoped would be their money maker, nothing came to light. One day one of the other guys came up with what become a million dollar project, he was on the money, he told his friends. Months went by before he chased up his friends to find out what to do about the idea he had only to find out that they had gone ahead with it and placed only their names, not his on the Company Directors which they had set up without his input or involvement. His idea made other people money and he never got credit for it.

You can easily deprive yourself of a rich fulfilling life, money, joy and job just because people you thought were your friends care little to nothing about you, they know you and that’s about it. Go back to the drawing board and ask the question, what is a friend. The dictionary definition of friend goes a little like this:

1.a person attached to another by feelings of affection or personal regard.
2.a person who gives assistance; patron; supporter: friends of the Boston Symphony.
3.a person who is on good terms with another; a person who is not hostile: Who goes there? Friend or foe?
4.a member of the same nation, party, etc.
5.( initial capital letter ) a member of the Religious Society of Friends; a Quaker.

I think I can make this a little clearer, a person who does not check on you, call you just to say hello, take you out, help you move, help you with child are last minute, take you to a doctors appointment, know your kids birthdays, walk your dogs when you are tied up is really not a friend, they are just an acquaintance and does deserve to know your vision, your life story and thing you hold close to your chest.

On the other hand, when you meet a person who wants to tell you all their life story within the first few seconds of meeting is also not your friend, they have an issue. Just because you talk to someone does not mean that they are your friends. Find your true friends and when you know they have your back and care for nothing but your happiness, that’s your friend then trust them with your issues but until they demonstrate that they have your back, say nothing. Your vision is your life, protect it.
