As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. Proverbs 27:17
Sometimes my friends get on my last nerve. They are always doing big things. I have one friend who just started a web-site that immediately took off and is gaining more and more subscribers every day. I have another friend who is always sending me the stats from his workouts. He’s always running, or lifting weights, or doing yoga and burning calories. Another friend of mine just became a judge. Not on America’s Top Model, although that would be interesting, a real-life “ALL RISE” judge. One after another, they just keep doing things, succeeding, and being annoying. So why are we still friends, you might ask? Simple, we are here to annoy each other.
You see, in the same way, my friends annoy me, I annoy them. It was a pact that we made a long time ago. Somewhere we read that you become the average of the people that you spend the most time with. Knowing that we were not going to stop spending time with each other, we made a pact to make sure that our average was outstanding. That meant that we all had to be a catalyst to each other, being the best we could be. It meant doing well and continually challenging each other to do better. We share tips, strategies, books, and all types of things that we want to use to make each other better because we don’t want to be great alone, we want our whole crew to be great.
Sometimes you have to take a good look at your friends. Are the people you call friends making each other better, or are you all just maintaining the status quo. If you are going to be all God has gifted you to be, you have to have people around you who are doing the same. You need people who are pushing you and who you are pushing so that together you all can be the best you. So take a look around at your crew and start annoying each other to greatness.
