Motivational Power Quote

 

 

 

Your Public Image

“Associate yourself with men of good quality,

if you esteem your reputation;

for it is better to be alone

 than in bad company.”

George Washington, 1st US President

 

 

As I see it. . . . . . . .

Your public Image

 

We will be known by the company we keep and the company you keep with be a reflection of your public image.

 

People will see us as a mirror image of the company we keep and they will judge us by those associations. Based on your public image people will make a decision if they want to be associated with you or do business with you.

 

Many times those decisions are made with out our input; they are making the decision based on your public image.

 

How people see you either will either become the calling card that opens the doors to greater success. Or your public image will become an obstacle in blocking relationships and in doing business with a person. 

 

Pick your associations with care as people will judge you by the company we keep.  Let the people that you associate with be a reflection of your personal values and the type of person that you want to be.

 

Associate with people that will bring out the best in you and will stretch you to become the best that you can be.

 

To protect your public image and your reputation it’s far better to stand alone then to be in bad company. In time we will be known by the company we keep.

Lou - good solid advice. Too many times we may be deluded into believing people don't notice or won't care about the company we keep.

This was one of the key rules I learned when I was in management.  I surrounded myself with experts in their various subjects and made sure I let them do their jobs.  The more top people I'm around, the better I look.
