It is time to prune your relationships.

Pay attention to who you have in your life as they are way more important than you think.

Most of us tend to stagnate in our lives as far as relationships go. We keep the same friends, etc., even though our values change. But as our values change, we need new relationships to reinforce them. Pruning makes room for new growth.

Who do you want to bring into your life and who has to go in order to make room for them?

This phrase will save you from pushy people.

Say “I’ll get back to you” when you get an unreasonable request from someone.

Many of us have a hard time saying no to unreasonable requests. We give up control and get pushed into something we don’t want to do. If you can’t say “no”, you can delay them by putting them off. Chances are this will buy you the time to avoid getting involved. Or at least come up with a reason to really say no.

Who can you try this out on right now?

Stay out of the drama.

Getting involved in other people’s drama is a sure way to pull yourself down.

Drama is all around you and people are always trying to pull you into the drama in their life. It can be exciting, that is for sure, but if you step back you will realize that it distracted you big time and probably took a psychological toll on you as well. A lot of this type of stuff is probably coming from just a few people in your life, so see what you can do to limit your exposure to them.

Keep the drama out of your life and on the stage where it belongs.

Associate with people more successful than you.

You will never improve yourself if you continue to associate with people that do not have the skills and motivation you also need to have in order to be successful.

At some level associating with people that are not at the level you want to be will pull you down. They may directly try to keep you down, you may not want to leave them and so on. But the bottom line is that you are going to be held down. It will probably hurt and it will probably be hard to find new people like you want to become but you can do it. In fact you must do it if you are sincere in your desire to improve.

Who do you know you would like to be like?

Don’t talk to me like that.

You have to say that to people that are filling you with doubts, trivia, and bad information.

Most people want to fill your mind with their nastiness, pettiness, and useless information. You have to stop that kind of stuff from coming in and replace it with positive information and information that will move you towards your goals. This takes real work. You have to constantly monitor the information that is coming to you from the media, your associates, even your family. What happens outside of you starts inside of you.

Fill your mind with helpful positive information today.

Here is how to keep other people from pulling you down.

The sad truth is that most of the people around you want you to fail.

They may not even know it but most people will throw roadblocks in front of your efforts to succeed. You can’t control them but you can control how you respond. You have to keep your self confidence up through the use of affirmations and taking positive action. You deserve to be happy and successful. Keep a list of your past accomplishments, even if they are small. Remember them when the Nay Sayers come around and keep on keeping on.

Stay strong!

How to remain happy even when you are failing.

Failing is a bummer, but it doesn’t have to be a downer.

Failing can be really, really depressing, no doubt about it. And when we really want to be happy it seems to hit us harder. The key to overcome this is to modify your goals away from absolute success and to incorporate factors that let you get credit for learning from failure.
When you are faced with a failure and you give yourself credit for trying to learn from what happened, you give yourself hope while gaining satisfaction from you efforts. This translates to happiness.

Ready to take a shot at reframing failure into happiness?

You life will go smoother if you practice the “Art Of Allowing”.

The “Art Of Allowing” means to allow other people and things to exist as they are while allowing the things you are focused on to come into your life.

If we concentrate more on what we want and less on what is outside you range of control we will move ahead much faster. It is difficult to turn down our focus on things that annoy us or are different than what we want in the world as a whole. However, to the extent that we can do this, we will find more of the things we want will come to us. Our energy is focused on what we want and less diluted by other things.

What can you turn down the volume on right now?

A test to see if you need better friends.

How your friends react to your goals will tell you if it is time to look for new friends.

Popular wisdom says not to tell people about your goals, as they will sabotage them, so you do not get ahead of them. It is true that many people do not want you to improve as they think they will feel bad seeing you become better than them in some way. I think you should use announcing your goals as a test of your friends. Ditch anyone that does not support you. You need all the support you can get when you are trying to improve yourself.

Keep the goals and lose the friends.
