Overcoming Obstacles 2-3


Phil Drolet


People around us influence us whither we like it or not. They influence our way of thinking, our decisions, therefore the outcomes we receive.

Surround yourself with people who can help you achieve your goals. If you know where you at and if you know where you want to be you will need to start moving on. If you surround yourself with people who are going to the same destination then the journey will be easier and you will reach your destination faster. For example, if your goal is to have an athletic body and you surround yourself with “gym rats” you will likely to achieve your goal of having that desired body. That result will be achieved in an easier way than if you did it yourself.

On the other hand, if you surround yourself with people who are going to a different direction then your journey will be harder and you will need longer time to reach your destination, if you could reach it. Going back to the gym example and compare the result you will get if you want to have a nice body but your friends have no desire in going to gym. You can achieve your goal but it will be harder on you.

 Some people forego the chance of personal growth and development because they do not have anyone supporting them. They feel that they will not make it on their own. Maybe they need someone who pushes them on when they are close to giving in, or their friends and family are even obviously against their plans. Saoirse OMara

People around us can be obstacles on our way but they can also be an aid that make our experience easier and more beautiful.
