Your success in sticking with an exercise and weight loss program may just come down to you asking for help - unless pride gets in your way. The key to longevity is surrounding yourself with people who will give you support followed up by accountability.
“A good team is one that has quality support, honest encouragement, and requires personal responsibility.” From my e book The “A” Factor
Your Inner Circle
“You can tell a lot about a person by friends they keep.” This is a very true statement. Let me say this first. Many decisions in life have strings attached to them. Strings sometimes make it virtually impossible to accomplish any goal. However, it is important to be aware of who influences you most. Usually there are two types of people around you:
Toxic, negative, pessimistic people Non-toxic, encouraging support people.
Negative, Pessimistic People: Toxic
You usually know these people. After being around them you feel physically and mentally drained. Toxic people are envious, cynical, and pessimistic by nature. If you try to get support and encouragement from this type of person, all you’re going to get is frustrated. If possible, don’t spend much time with them.
