Wow, you know how to cut to the chase!
I have a feeling that you and I probably think alike on this topic...
I'm not sure what "hang out" means... I guess we can interpret it how we want...!
Here's what I had in mind when I asked the question...
Many years ago (before Sowpub!), I joined Herbalife...
I only lasted a month or so. (It wasn't my scene...) But...
During my very short time in Herbalife, I went to a Jim Rohn event (which was organized by Herbalife).
Jim Rohn said something a long the lines of, you'll make as much money as the average of your 5 closest friends (or something like that). You've heard it before!
So... his advice was (as I recall) - ditch your loser friends! Just spend time with the winners!
I think he was defining "loser" by income...
I felt uncomfortable with that. I have friends who have "low income" - yet whose company I've enjoyed...
Now, are they "losers"? I don't think so... But if you define everything by income... well...
As you said, where does that put Mother Teresa? Wow, you know how to cut to the chase!
So I ignored the late Jim Rohn's advice...
Who knows, if I had followed it, maybe I'd be 100 times richer?
I have both rich friends and poor friends. I try to hang out with people who I enjoy hanging out with, and who are basically good people... That's what I guess satisfies me in a more "spiritual" way...
But - I know there are people out there who give the other advice - to ditch your "loser" friends, and only spend time with your "winner" friends - where "winning" or "losing" is often determined by wealth or income!
So, I was curious what others thought... I'm glad you chimed in... Thanks!
