Surround yourself with the right people.
When you surround yourself with good, healthy people, people who want the best for you, you will end up with a stronger resolve when it comes to your desire for success. These people will also help you stay on track towards achieving your goals.
Before you help someone, find out why they are in trouble.
Not everyone is a noble victim of unjust circumstances and exploitation. In fact, most people have simply rejected trying to solve their problems, as being the victim is much easier. If this is the case, the help you offer them is truly no help at all, simply because they do not want to be helped.
Surround yourself with people who support your desire for success.
These people will not tolerate your cynicism and destructiveness, they will only encourage you when you do good for yourself and others and punish you carefully when you do not.
Know when to cut someone out of your life.
When someone brings you down and keeps you from achieving what you desire, it might be time to cut them out of your life.
