This has been a topic that a lot of people overlook but it's VERY vital for a person to do this for their own peace and prosperity!!! You have to get rid of ALL DEAD WEIGHT!!!!! What I mean by dead weight is people that ALWAYS complain and keep their own problems & issues with them like OLD CLOTHES!!! It is VERY important that you drop these type of people because if you continue to allow yourself to be in that environment, then you will be susceptible to problems yourself which will hold you back from achieving your goals in life! I already made up in my mind that I'm not going to allow myself to be around negative people with issues and I rather surround myself around people who are trying to push forward with out living in the past!!! This is a topic that I can write for days about but you get the picture :-)
If you follow this concept you will be better off in life and have SO MUCH peace & abundance in life you will be GLAD YOU DID!!!
