There are only a few basic things that can cause you real trouble in life or business.
1. Antagonistic connections
We’ve all heard that you are who you associate with. The people you surround yourself with can strongly influence the quality of your life and the success of your business. Your outlook on life, your sense of well-being, your health and how you feel about yourself can be depressed or uplifted by the people you have in your environment.
80% of the individuals you know and work with are generally well-intentioned and good people. 20% are causing trouble for you or your business to one degree or another. 2.5% of the 20% could be classified as evil or psychotic. The other 17.5% are more or less victims who act out the actions being inflicted upon them by the people in 2.5% band that they are connected to.
Recognizing these types of people and knowing how to handle them can free you from their negative influence and revitalize your outlook on life, improve your health and uplift your spirits.
2. Harmful Acts
We all make mistakes, act in ways that sometimes offend or hurt others, weight our decisions to our own benefit and sometimes maliciously strike out in anger. We feel bad afterword. Sometimes we rectify the wrong; often we don’t.
We tend to withdraw from the people and areas we harm. Our interest and affections diminish. Life seems less alive and hopeful. We are less motivated and inspired by work.
Think of it as bad karma – you get back the affect that you create on others.
It doesn’t have to stay that way. There are simple actions you can take to renew your affinity for the people around you, reignite your drive for business success and have a more fullfilling, happier life.
3. Failed Purposes
Maybe it just seems like too much to endure another failure. You’ve tried over and over to make something of yourself or your business. Maybe you’ve had some success, but the losses are getting the best of you. Your spirit has dampened.

Albert Eistein: He didn’t speak till he was four and didn’t read till seven. His parents and teachers thought he was mentally handicapped. He ended up winning a Nobel prize and became the face of modern physics.
