"How far you go in your life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these."Make a list of all the people you hang around. Next to each name put a plus sign by the names that have a positive effect on you a minus sign by the ones that have a negative effect on you. Sometimes, it's the ones closest to us that hold us back. You must find ways to remove all of the negative relationships from your life.
