You are living in a world immersed in negativity.
To be more successful, you need to make changes.
Start the changes from yourself, and then analyze the relations you have with the closest persons to you.
It seems your friends offer little support and they are cynical about your goals and desires.
You will achieve your goals a lot quicker if you spend more time with positive people.
Make it a habit of restricting your group of friends to people who have a positive outlook on life.
You will start associating with positive people who are going to help you with your personal development and success. Your thoughts and decisions are influenced by the people with whom you associate. The decisions you make today are determining the future you have created in your mind.
If you mix with mainly negative people or people who pour cold water on your ideas for changing and improving your life, your motivation and drive to make those changes will suffer.
