Friends are Asset

“A man that hath friends must show himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.” Proverbs 18:24. That's my favorite verses of the scriptures. Wondering why that? Or, Oh, is Wilfred now a Pastor? Far from it, as you all know, the scriptures cannot be broken for anything in the world.

I just believe in genuine friendship. Iron sharpeneth iron. Remember, no man is a monopoly of knowledge. That is why as surprising as it may sound, I have tested and trusted friends who are closer to me than my family. They unrelentingly and significantly made my adulthood what it is today. We have always been there for each other no matter the time limits or constraints, with traces as far back as 25years and still counting. These trusted friends of mine are without bias tendencies, they are friends whose input to my success are unwavering, friends who can go far, above and beyond with me.
How well do you keep your friendship or relationship? Many do not keep or value friendship because they have this ideology of “I like to keep to myself” syndrome. Perhaps, because they are not ready to share their resources like “their time” let alone their material resources. Remember, Life is give and take, and it’s too short to be self-centred without building confidence in others. If you feel you don’t keep or need a genuine friendship, then I have a diagnosis for you which apparently means you don’t need advancement in life. Although it’s just my opinion, I feel healthy friendship, partnership and relationship are good practices for a profound career building and future growth. Haven't said that, I challenge you all, show me your friend, and I will tell you who you are.
