To my friends: How do you handle peer pressure? Have you ever had the experience of being shot down by people you thought were your friends when you shared a dream or vision about your future? People don’t like change. This is true of both the well-to-do as well as the poor. We become comfortable with our situations. Several years ago, I had a student in one of my economics classes who told us about the push-back that he was getting from one of his parents about his efforts to improve himself. I’m serious. He was told that he didn’t belong where he wanted to be. Fortunately, he ignored this “advice” and moved ahead with his life. I think that the key to his situation was that he decided to surround himself with people who would support his dream. Here is my question for the day. Who is in your circle?
Fair winds and following seas to you all.
