Cut Loose From People
These wretchers will tell you, if you listen, of the impossibility - and the foolishness - of trying to make yourself richer than they are. In doing so, they can drain confidence and optimism from you. Surprisingly, such people may include your family, your lover, your husband or wife, or your friends.
It's not that they do not care about you; they may well do. But two fears confront them: they (openly) fear you are placing yourself in harm's way, which cannot be a good thing; and their own timidity. Above all, they do not wish to be faced with the messy chaos that accompanies strenuous effort and risk. They yearn for the familiarity and sense of false security conjured by the status quo.
This is why you must cut loose. Getting rich comes from attitude of mind. It isn't going to happen if things drift on pretty much the way they are right now.
