Type of Friends who drag u down

Posted: December 16, 2015 in Uncategorized

One of the greatest impacts on your dreams is the
friends that you keep. Your friends will drag you down
or they will build you up.
Positive influences can make everything easier while
negative influences will make you feel like you’re
walking in thick muck. I have allowed the wrong people
to sneak into my life more than I would like to admit,
even while knowing that your friends can determine the
quality and direction of your life.
Some friends we know we shouldn’t keep but some we
are just naive about their negative affect on our life. If
you are plateauing in life make sure that you aren’t
hanging around with one of these 4 types of friends.
Here are the 4 types of friends that are
hurting your success :
1. The doubter
The doubting friend always wants proof that your
dream is possible. They will believe in you as long as
they see it. This friend will buy in late in the game but
in the early stages of chasing your dreams they will
fuel your doubt. When you hang out with this friend you
spend most of your time trying to convince them of the
vision that you can see. This friend will describe
themselves as a realist but you don’t have time to
entertain this doubter.
2. The helper
This friend’s heart is right but there help is not helpful.
They criticize everything, finding fault in the smallest
detail. They are general with praise but specific and
cutting with where they think you could have done
better. In all actuality, this helper is trying to get your
dream to be what they think it should be. This friend
will always make you feel like your best is not good
enough and increase your doubt. You don’t have time
to defend against the helper.
3. The fun friend
This friend is always looking for a good time. The fun
friend is a blast to be around but can get you into
trouble if you aren’t careful. Life is a party to this
friend and they don’t take anything seriously. This
friend may be someone you cut out completely but
more than likely they are just someone you need to
limit your time with . If you hang around fun friend too
much you will have no time to work towards your
dream.
4. The me friend
This friend is so focused on themselves that the
relationship is one sided. This friend has no give and
take and you feel used after spending time with them.
You may be an enamored attribute they have, that
causes you to stay around but it’s just not worth it. In
fact this friend is not a friend and should be cut out
immediately. You don’t have any room to have a one
sided relationship ever, but especially if you are
chasing a dream.
Some friends you will need to cut out completely,
others you will just need to spend less time with. You
must make room for better relationships . As your inner
circle changes you will be amazed at how your dreams
become easier and more joyful. This journey is too hard
to have negative forces within your control pulling at
you. There should be no guilt for cutting off
relationships. Some friendships are meant for a lifetime
but many are for a season of life. Set clear boundaries
and stick to them and watch your dreams take off.
