Enjoy gathering and working with people of like mind. Engage where it is truly useful. Avoid encouraging people who are merely seeking your influence for their own ends. Remain neutral with people who are simply feeding off you. Then they will begin to trust you for who you are.
The task at hand is to lead the world out of confusion and back to order. Establish a common goal among your friends that will unite forces that are now tending in different directions. With determination and caution each will find the means of contributing to that goal and bringing it to success.
