There is something to be learned in all scenarios, but when we are honest about our current status, we can usually admit that we tend to seek “surroundings” that are comfortable and in which we feel appreciated for the value we offer.
The key is to remember that there are always “greater and lesser persons” than ourselves. If we truly desire to become “greater”, we must choose also to surround ourselves with people who challenge our ways of thinking and doing…so that we fine tune and improve what we bring to the table, as well.
