If you want to get wealth, nobody must be allowed to stand in your way. Even friends can be your worst enemy. Particularly if they’re naysayers or losers – or into drugs and booze, or just out-and-out negative. They’ll drag you down, whether they know they’re doing it or not.
If you are hanging out with losers, get rid of them. They might be great company and fun to be with. Nevertheless you need to blow them out.
Sure, you’ll probably feel guilty about it. But you have to make your mind up and ask yourself whether you want money or not. If you do, then you’ll have to man-up and lose a few friends from your life.
Remember, there’s seven billion people in the world. So you can easily find new friends.
But be selective. Make sure your new friends are motivated and deeply focused on getting money and wealth. Anything less and you’ll be back to square one – carrying losers.
Ideally, you’ll make some friends who are more successful than you. That way, you’ll be able to learn from them and model some of the methods they use in money-getting.
Do remember, though, that friendships have to be a value exchange. There has to be something in it for both of you. This is very important when it comes to your friends that are more successful than you. Don’t be a toady or a parasite, otherwise you’ll be blown out in short order.
The bottom line is: Get new friends that inspire you. People who get on with things and walk the talk.
