Change also requires that you put yourself first and therein lies the biggest problem. The people, places, and things that occupy your life are not always receptive nor conducive to the change being implemented. They try to monopolize your time & attention with their needs, problems, and opinions. Take what ever necessary steps you need to take to eradicate that, including distancing yourself from those elements. Keep your focus, be your own biggest fan, and never quit on yourself. Go get it!
