Look, life is sweet when you are with the right people, when you are living your life, when you are doing meaningful things, when you are doing something bigger than yourself. Life is bitter when you are with the wrong people, people who are working day and night to tear you down, people who never see anything good in you, people who are not for your dreams, people who are not willing to help you become a better human being. You can help yourself. You can take care of yourself. Do not wait for other people to come and decide how you will live your life. You can't change other people. But you can change yourself. You can change your life. And you can "empty your life of the wrong people." If you do not have the courage to empty your life of the wrong people, you will never attract the right ones into your life. Joel Osteen writes, "If you don't empty your life of the wrong people, you will never meet the right people." To meet the right people, you must make room for them to come into your life. If you can't attract them, the right people, they won't come. To do that, you must first let go of the wrong people in your life. It doesn't matter who they are. They are suckers!

If a situation is not good for you, walk away. If you do not walk away from it, you are making it worse, not better. Do not let fear stop you from leaving a terrible place. If your job is not making you happy, then it is not the right one for you. But do not just walk away from your job. Make sure you have another one before you leave. If you stay in a toxic place, one thing will happen to you: you will stop growing. You will find it really difficult to do what you are here to do. To grow. In the words of Joel Osteen, "What you're not willing to walk away from is where you'll stop growing." If you are not willing to let go, then you are only wasting your time. If there is anything that is not making you happy, that is stealing from your future, walk away from it. If you stay, if give in to fear, you will stop growing. And if you are not growing, life becomes meaningless. Do not let that happen to you. Whatever it is that you are not comfortable with, try to make it better. But if you can't, then walk away from it. If not, it will stop you from growing, from chasing your dreams. It is okay to walk away. Do it when you need to. It is important. If you can, why not? If you can't, why? Question: If you are not enjoying something, then why are you still doing it?
