You never know who your real friends are until adversity overtakes you and you need co-operation

Friends, companions or acquaintance who really knows, we class as we interact on a social or professional level. From all of our personal experiences we cannot always be certain of who will step up to the mark and provide that support and understanding which any situation we find ourselves in demands.


Being an avid follower of the Napoleon Hill foundation and daily quotes the one below landed in my inbox today!! After i had read it, I thought it more than worthy passing on the wisdom and insight, compelling yes, but how many of our friends, colleagues, acquaintance or other would think in this same way?? I believe I have some who certainly think in this way..........
You never know who your real friends are until adversity overtakes you and you need co-operation
Everybody loves a winner, it has been said, but nobody knows you when you’re down and out. One of the often unappreciated benefits of adversity is that it accelerates the process of identifying your true friends. Most of us have many acquaintances and associates, but we are indeed fortunate if we have a handful of real friends. You will very quickly identify yours when you ask them for help. The wise individual is the one who, when asked for assistance, recognizes that he may one day find himself in the same situation.
