I said I dedicated this week to posting about my mistakes and this was a huge one. I wasn't surrounding myself with success and therefore, I was being unsuccessful.
Misery needs company. I went through a period in my life where I know I was miserable. I had lost someone close to me, I was enormous and very depressed. For the most part, I was hanging around with similar people. Depressed, miserable people who didn't have control over their lives. Once the fog lifted so to speak, and I wasn't miserable anymore I had to step back and say...why is this my friend? It sounds terrible, but I realized the only thing I had in common with a few people was eating bad food, drinking, and bitching. I wasn't surrouding myself with successful people, so I wasn't successful.
I made some changes in my social circle as I lost weight, and it was for the better. I no longer spent time with those who were always complaining (everyone has a bad day, but a series of bad days is a cause for HMMM). I started trying to make new friends through finding ppl with similar interests (and am still doing this). I have a new lifestyle and I need to be around those who do too. I'm more interested in a meetup group to hike , network, or join exercise classes than I am one to go out to dine at new places.
Those you are around do influence you....choose wisely.
