E119: Who Need's To Leave Your Life NOW & Who You Need To Bring In To It W/ Dave Swillum


Every person in your life has an impact on how you feel, think, and operate. When we are going after our dreams and thinking outside the box as creatives and entrepreneurs people will create friction with you. People will question you, or believe in you but just live things that are negative to your missions which makes it harder for you to keep away from the habits you don’t want to portray. People are typically in good intention but we are the sum of the 5 people we spend the most time with. That’s why it’s important even if we aren’t looking to take people completely out of our life because we love them, we at least be very aware of what affect they have and make alterations to change that affect if it’s negative. It’s time to get the people harming you out of your life and bring in people that challenge you and make you stronger. We don’t have to get rid of loved ones we care for but it may be time to alter how they show up and appear in your life in order to form the life you want instead of what others want of you.
