If you surround yourself with those whom have little faith, don't believe in themselves, are perpetually negative... They will inhibit your success, your drive to pursue a life filled with happiness. Misery loves company, it's not cliche; it's the truth. People who generally care will lift you up, support you, and inspire you. In the past few years, the list of people with whom I associate myself has been trimmed. I don't have time to indulge the misery that comes with negative people, my time is too precious. I have an advisory board filled with amazing people who I can bounce ideas off of, and get constructive criticism from. They are all either business owners, web developers, marketing executives, accountants, and photographers like me! It is AWESOME to learn from them, and I am blessed to have them in the journey.
