Daily quote Surround yourself with people who talk about visions and ideas instead of other people.

It sounds good, but still questionable, Brian. 

For instance, what wrong about talking good about those, who inspire you or who you love or respect. It's more about gossip. Not in general. On top of that, it is very difficult to do, if not impossible, in a workplace. In many cases you just have to be prepared to deal with it. To face toxic people and to stand up to them if it needs.

If I may modify your quote slightly to reflect my thoughts:

"Surround yourself with people and things that elevate your spirit."

P.s. I think I understand what Brian meant. We surround ourselves with people who inspire us with their visions and ideas as they can be our role models, but this does not mean that we avoid people who don't provide us with ideas. As an example, our family members or colleagues may not provide with ideas and grand visions all the time, but they give us love and companionship. (Both of you have valid perspectives.)

Yes that is true Mi Sha but I was referring to those people who everytime you talk to them all they do is gossip/talk about other people's lives. I admit you can talk good about other people as you mentioned but I personally think you shouldn't dwell on it because you have your life to focus on.
