Often we have been programmed that an asset or a liability is always something outside people or ourselves, and this is why many to date still think an asset is only a house or a business, but these aren’t the only, the biggest asset or liability is our own mind and other people’s minds that surround ourselves with.
Fact is this, even your best friend or your wife or husband can be your greatest liabilities to your life too, and so is the opposite. And it’s a shame that the value of most people’s dreams died immediately after they got married. Mind you, even you yourself can be your greatest liability or asset to your own life.
In the financial world a liability has been defined as something that takes away money from your pocket, with or without working; and then an asset is something that puts money in your pocket, with or without working. A liability feeds on you, and an asset feeds you.
In the personal development world, a liability is a person who does not add value, who takes away value and who divides value away from your life; and an asset is a person who adds and multiplies value in your life. Question, are the people your surround and hang around with, supporting and adding value to your own dreams and life? If not, it’s high time you stopped spending much time with such people or you had to find another company that will be adding value to your dreams and life. Life is too miserable to spend it with people who do not support your progress.
The best thing you can do if you desire your life to be of progress is to follow what Edmund Lee said, “Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers and thinkers, but most of all, surround yourself with those who see greatness within you, even when you don’t see it yourself”.
