How to Acquire Good Friends

I need to make better friends that will have a good influence in my life, that will help me make good choices. They should say that they will not go or do bad things that keep getting me in to trouble.
I will get rid of the friends that I have now that do not fit this criteria.
I will act and talk like the people I want to be with.
I will do the types of things they like to do.
I will invite these type of people over to do activities at my home.
I will do things over at their homes.
I will become the type of person that will help them to make good decisions.
∑ I will talk about how well I did or didnít do today, with God, in my nightly prayers.
∑ In those prayers, with God, I will make a plan to overcome what when wrong.
∑ I will ask my family and friends to help me choose the right.
∑ I will picture myself feeling and acting as if I have already reached my goals. The more vivid the picture, the better chance I will have of reaching my goals.
∑ I will not quit because things aren't working out. Some goals may need some changes to make them work better. I will review the effectiveness of each step with parents and God and make changes where needed.
When: I will start? Immediately!
