As a human being we all like to attract the people towards us. But keep in mind:- When you attract people in your Life by Quality you display, keep in mind same time that you have to Retain People in your Life by the Quality you Posses in you.

Yes we do have to retain that quality. But there are lots of people that are extremely deceitful. And they show one side of them which turns out not to be who that person really is. I have seen them all. I am an observer. I watch and listen, always. And I have learned to see people in a negative first before I see the positive. That way I am protecting myself. I always give the other person enough rope to hang themselves. Then after I find out that the person is trustworthy, then I will deal with them.

Keep in mind every coin has two sides same way each person is having two character in them which they expose to others and which they does not,which we called it a hidden quality. It is always better to be straight forward and open minded

I believe in being straight forward and open. But I also reserve the right not to trust. I know most people have two sides to them and thats where it comes down to, you never really know who someone is. It is human nature I guess.

Even I do believe to be straight forward and open minded and also expect the other in the same way. But what we expect from others is not possible as each individual have their own ways of indulging with others.

As I journey in life, I meet different kinds of people... people come and go. Meet and go again, this is what journeying means after all. But as I journey I don't just attract people the life by full quality. That will be too difficult and very tiring. I make sure that the people I will meet would know, take and accept who I am. That's also what I do see to who they are. As I walk in this journey, i don't tell people hey stay with me, they are free to go ahead or stay behind. Fortunately, a few remain walking with me, and knowing me more and as I know them more too. Some will be a little late, but they were able to cope with the walk. I may only have very few friends, but they are special to me, for they have journeyed with me as I have journeyed with them. [b]Life is like riding a bicycle.

I agree with you we do meet so many people of different nature in our journey and some we like some we don't like. We continue our relationship with few and with other just when we want to. Our journey is continuous one and which will never end.

Yes, if we end it is just means that we are 6 feet below the ground. Keep on rolling.. rolling.. rolling like a river.. (Tina Turner voice)

I dont think we need to attract people; if we are good; people will get attracted automatically, am i right?

Yes you are correct attracting other people actually lies in us and surely base on our character people do attract towards us which are more beneficial to us as whole

I personally don't like attracting people... I have few important people in my life & I'd rather keep it that way... I don't go out of my way to turn down a friendship if someone offers or try to put people down... But at the same time, I don't go out of my way to meet new people either... Because of my job, I do meet a lot of people but I keep that strictly on professional level & try hard not to make it personal... And it's been working fine for me... And I don't try to retain people in my life either... For me, it's always better if they stay in my life on their choice & for who I am instead of what I do... If they agree with my choices & the way of my life, they'll stick around without any efforts on my part...

You are correct one has to keep professional life and personal life separately so that it will not get clash in our daily life. After all we as human being also have got the limits on us and keeping that in mind it is always better to put forward our step.

I better have few people/friends with me who trust and believe in me because I am me, rather than pretending to be a goody goody person. I can't stand pretending...take me as I am, or never- that I do not care.

That's fine and it is always good to have few friends rather have the lot's of friend because from these few friends you can choose the best and trust worthy friend

I have not said that you should hide your identity but on the contrary you should be open minded so that other can understand you better
