      Default Why You Need To Get Rid Of Bad Company

      If you're trying to get ahead and improve yourself,you've taken steps to set yourself up for success. You've gotten in shape (mentally and physically), you're working hard on yourself, andyou're reading books and articles with information you need. If you’re trying tomake improvements, great work -- most people try to get ahead by blaming their problems ontheir environment, and don't take any of the blame for why they're stuck in a rut. However, there are ways your environment can drag you down -- look at the peoplearound you. If the people you're friends with, or associate with at work, are a negativeinfluence, guess what? You're being influenced, whetheryou’re aware of it or not. Now, any of your friends can have a bad patch, and beingthere to pick them up when they're down is part of friendship. But we're talking aboutthat other friend -- the one whose idea of fun is always getting wasted, who can neverchip in on the bill and always has a crisis he needs help cleaning up. You ignore hiscalls, and the one time you do pick up feels like one too many. If you'relike most guys, you don't seek out the company of this kind of guy, but when he initiatesa meet-up, you tend to accommodate. It's easy to say and hard to do, but here are fourcompelling reasons you need to cut ties.They are shaping your attitude

      Jim Rohn is a self-help author who famously said: “You are the average of the fivepeople you spend the most time with.” Your attitude, the way you look at the world,is influenced by who you spend time with. Think about it: Your worldview is shaped by thethings you see and experience in the world. The way you invest your time in people andactivities shapes the man you become. That's why it's so important for guys to travel, tosee new things and expand their horizons. On the flip side, if you spend your time in asmoky bar, listening to somebody complain about how their job sucks, their boss sucks, their love life sucks,and there's never enough money, it's going to rub off on you. Do you leave these sessionsfeeling charged and ready to take on the world? No, they juice you up with negative energyand teach you to look at your life like a victim. That's just a bad attitude -- we've allhad friends who get into too many fights, trouble with the law, drugs, and worse. You growto fit your environment, so make sure your environment breeds excellence andpositivity.They are derailing you from your goals

      Have you ever been driving home from work, with the plan to cook dinner, clean up aroundthe house, throw in a load of laundry, exercise, save a cat that's stuck in a tree, solvethe Middle Eastern situation, read for a while, then work a little more on your plan to gointo business for yourself? Then your phone rings with your buddies telling you to meetthem at the bar. You tell yourself “I'll do all that stuff tomorrow...,” andthe next thing you recall is your alarm waking you up in the morning. Listen, planschange, and one of the best parts of being an adult is that you get to make responsibledecisions about your life. You can eat pretty much whatever you want to for dinner. Feellike grabbing a DVD tonight? Go for it. And if the offer to do something fun comes along,by all means, rearrange your schedule and have a good time. Read on forreasons why you need to get rid of bad company... Continue Reading

      i've said it many times you are who you hang out with. you hang out with a bunch of dead beats next thing you know 10yrs has passed and now your a dead beat. you hang out with people who have jobs and are successful you'll more then likely be sucessful yourself. you hang out with crack heads you will be a crackhead..
