. . . however, most people are afraid to break away from the people who are holding them back
and the "unwillingness" to sever (or alter) those "ties"
is a greater force than their desire to take control of their lives
and move ahead
. . . the biggest issue in life (in my opinion) is not "knowing" what to do; it is how to get away from the people telling you
not to do the very thing you want
. . . and, more often that not, it is because they are unhappy with themselves
and would prefer to keep you unhappy "with them"
than change and move ahead as you move ahead
. . . choose people who uplift you -- eliminate those who anchor you
to your past limitations
do this -- and your life will change
. . . suddenly and dramatically
but a safe prediction is that few (very few) are willing to do this
