“To practice means to perform, in the face of all obstacles some act of vision, of faith, of desire.”- Martha Graham
You want to be successful. You want to change your life. You want to live a great life. You want to run a successful business. You want to marry the best person in the world. It sounds good. It feels good. But what do you have to offer in return? Are you willing to pay the price? Have you prepared? If you haven’t prepared enough, do not even think about it. If you know you have what it takes to do whatever it is you want to do, then go for it.
Remember that not everyone in your house is your true friend. Some are happy for you when you are doing really well in your life. Others are not happy for you when you are doing well in your life.
Whether people are for you or against you, do not let that stop you from living your true life. Do not let other people’s perceptions of you define your life. You have got your life to live, to enjoy. If you are not enjoying it with the people you love, you are not with the right people. You are with the wrong ones. You are with the wrong people.
“Do not spend your time with people who are not for you.”
Life is too short. Life is for you! Live it! But do not live your life with people who are not for you,who are not for your success, who are not for your progress, who are not for your promotion, who are not for your happiness, who are not for your life. Do not hang around people who never stop talking about other people. If you are around talkers, leave them alone. If you are around procrastinators, leave them alone. If you are around bystanders, leave them alone. If you are around confused people, leave them alone. Because if you hang around lazy people, you are going to be like them.
But if you have the courage to walk your talk, to take a leap of faith, to do the impossible, your life will never be the same again. Whether you are okay with it or not, if you want to grow in your life, if you want to achieve your dreams, you have got to move away from people who are not for you. If you do not move away from the wrong minds, you are not going to achieve your dreams. Yes, you need people to help you succeed. Yes, you cannot succeed alone. But you do not need the wrong people in your life to succeed. Do not bring everybody into your life. Because you are a special Being!
