You are affected far more than you think by the people you spend your time with. Do your friends share your values?
Do they encourage you when you speak of your goals and dreams or do they scoff?
Make sure the people around you are conducive to the lifestyle you want to lead or you will find yourself being dragged again and again into behavior that distances you from your desires.
Friends with a habit of producing negative thoughts will especially hinder you. This can be a hard task to follow through with if you realize you good friend is one of these saboteurs, but you must be firm! Don’t let anyone get in the way of you being all that you can be.
