You know me, but if you don’t or are just tuning in, you’ll know that I’m a fan of this opportunity that we all call life and I encourage everyone to have a little fun with it. NE ways, there’s something that’s been irking me a little lately and I think that we should think about it for a second before we move on with our day…
I don’t know how else to say this brothalamew, but you gotta drop your loser friends. No seriously. I’m not kidding. Drop. Your. Loser. Friends.
Now before you start scratching your head and thinking that I’ve gone off the deep end, give me a second to show you where I’m going with this.
First of all, I’m not saying drop ALL your friends (unless they’re all losers), but honestly, there are times when you have to cut the string on people that aren’t in line with your vision.
I get it, you’ve been friends with Pablo for like 15 years. Shannon was always there to hold your hair back in college…Those days are over though. You don’t need anyone to hold your hair, you (rarely) get drunk like that. And Pablo just sits on the couch all day and plays video games while he talks about how he coulda been awesome if…

I’m not telling you to cut off your friends, family, etc. but you and I both know that there are people in your life right now that aren’t helping you because of their negative attitudes towards their own lives or lack of desire to grow. So I say they need to go.

P.S. I want to reiterate that I’m not saying for you to do something ridiculous like give up all your friends. I, in fact, am encouraging you to go out and make new and better friends that are more in tune with your goals, your passion, and your direction. If you have friends that are holding you back from that in any way, I would encourage you to just spend a little less time with them and a little more time with others that are also on the same path. Talk soon…
