I am serious about making change in my life only focused on my family and the grind. My friends have changed to mainly positive pub members.

I would have to say this is an area I do struggle with especially with people I have grown up with or known for many years. As I do get older though, I have learned that saying no gets easier and losing contact with people that don’t edify me it has gotten easier. So far, I can say that my group of friends and close circles are all people that support me, even though a lot of them still talk smack about bitcoin and cryptocurrency but I know that they do it not to put me down or bad intentions but because they are honestly worried and just want the best for me in their own thinking. I am a firm believer of the quote, “Tell me who you go with and I’ll tell you who you are”.

Iv made this decision early on at the start of the b90x venture of waste management was to get rid of the toxic people and distractions from my life.

I associate mostly with now a close friend who is also into crypto investing and have a mini mining venture together with similar views and strong work ethics to push each other to achieve our goals.

Many people inspire me in the pub and in discord with a collective of great minds and different walks of life all driven for the same purpose for me to stay focus and keep me accountable to why i started this.

This is a hard one.
I want to start by mentioning someone who is supporting me.
That person is my wife. When i started getting into crypto she was really against it, but… Now she has totally got behind me.
Someone holding me back would be a mate of mine.

This is a scary topic. I feel like my wife is on my side, and also not on my side. She wants me to succeed with BTC, but then she keeps coming up with more ways that we need to spend our hard saved money. Or she’ll talk about how we can spend the gains we hope to make (where I can only think of reinvesting those gains). My social life is pretty much limited to work since I’m doing the family thing now. Luckily, I’ve already removed the distraction-friends. It is rather hard to figure out how to get my wife on board though. I’m hoping that during the next bull run (please be soon), she’ll get on board more easily when she can finally see some gains.

This was a real “food for thought” subject for me. I don’t think I have trouble cutting people lose or making new friend in my area of interest.

Relatives are the only mandatory associations, but, unless they live nearby, one should easily be able to control the amount of contact.

DAY 75 – People come and people go…make the best use of the time you have. :yin_yang::rocket:

I already see some people around me changing. Its for the good. I’m getting support from family and friends.
I am no stranger from walking away from old friends that I have deemed to be a pull on my aspirations. I have done it in the past long before B90X.
In the past I moved out of the state that my parents live in. I jokingly say, but there is a glimmer of truth in it, “2000 miles is almost far enough.”
My intention now is to find the successful guy that will push and encourage me. The Pub is full of them, but it would be nice to have that guy in my local area.
As far as new acquaintances, I filter then through my vision and mission. That is compass.

Pretty much all negative people have been cut from my life already, the ones that remain are the ones who have seen or are starting to see the light. Those who want to improve their life and unlock their final form get to stay.

PS: I didn’t get to write this until the next morning since I got home from work at 1030 last night and crashed out instantly, so you’ll see 2 post today. I watched the video yesterday though.

I’m not quite sure how to approach this one… Many of my closest friends have moved away for work so I don’t see or talk to them too much as is. The few in the area I still don’t see that often, so it is hard for me to notice more subtle changes in them. My parents and girl friend have been supportive. My friends have more seen this as something crazy I’m doing, but just explained to one what’s happening this weekend and he was just :mindblown: and couldn’t believe that real things are happening.

Being apart of this community has changed my friends into mainly people here who I spend my time with. Motivated individuals many professionals looking to make a positive change in their lives. Couldn’t be more blessed.

I only have a couple of friends that I still talk to from time to time. One is into crypto and working a shut down and the other is like 64 and his native language is Spanish. There is one guy I still work with that is much younger than me and he of all people has noticed the changes more than anyone. He calls me G, Told me the other day " I need to get my shit together like you G " . He is a really good guy I hope that I can continue to be a positive influence to him.

I have noticed that every time I’ve had a major life change towards a different direction that individuals filter themselves out of my life. Our last major life change was 3 years ago when my husband became disabled. When it first happened they called with their sympathy however within a year of the incident they were no where to be found.

When one chooses to journey on a road that is less traveled by, they have to be prepared not to see many travelers on that road.

Dang. I knew this one was coming. I have been fighting through this one for a couple weeks now. Trying to find the right time to have this conversation with my mom. If it were anyone else, it would be so much easier. When it’s your mom, that’s kind of a rough situation. I still haven’t come up with an easy out on this one. There’s probably not one. I just don’t want it to be ugly. The only time she calls me is when she needs something. I have been keeping track of this over the past several weeks. Never calls or visits just to say hi or check on the little one. So… the time is coming. I just pray for grace and understanding. Plus a filter over my mouth so I don’t blow her hair back.

I surround myself with my family at home. There is no one that I feel is holding me back.
I am my biggest foe. Going pro should help this.
My wife is generally supportive, which is great.

I am going to change and drop any negative people in my life. I am greatful for the family in my life who support me till this day. Greatful for the roof over my head and just the little things in life. Going to start surrounding myself with more positive people.
