Humans, just like catalysts have promoters and inhibitors. Promoters are people in your life that helps to make you function productively and efficiently. They are the people that tell you, you can make it, those that wake you up when you are asleep for too long, those that want to know how close you are, and how many steps you have taken to get to your desired goals. Iron will sharpen iron, so should a human sharpen another human. You have to look for your “sharpeners”, people who will always add value to you and multiply your output. I have come to discover that when an individual comes to another individual’s aid in anything, both individuals abilities to get that thing done is increased. Ask yourself, “Do people I spend most of my time with add value to my life, or they reduce my productivity?” If they do not add or multiply you, modify your timetable because your success and fulfillment is at stake!!! Look for people you leave their presence happier, better informed, inspired, and motivated to achieve your goals.
On the other hand, inhibitors are catalyst poisons. We should try not to be with people that slow us down, give us wrong ideas, backbite and back stab you, people that make you feel you cannot make it, either because of your status in life, or because there is no manifested sign of making it, or because of your location. They tell you to go the way everyone is going so that you end up how everyone ended up, leaving the world development-less. You must not spend time with this kind of people, so they do not poison your goals and purpose for living. We have to keep the world improving, and to improve the world, we must improve our actions towards success.
I’ll like to call on people who have inhibiting qualities to STOP!!! Be a promoter, it always pays.
