EIE Challenge Tip of the Day 29: “Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions.  Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you too, can become great.  When you are seeking to bring big plans to fruition,  it is important with whom you regularly associate.  Hang out with friends who are like-minded and who are also designing purpose-filled lives.  Similarly be that kind of a friend for your friends”- Mark Twain

The quote above reminds me how difficult changing lifestyle habits can be.  Choosing not drink with your friends and family, trying to explain your need to get to bed early to go for a run in the morning….(on a weekend!!), why you’re not eating this or that at the dinner table can be a tricky proposition.  To some extent, we are products of our environment and the choices we make, especially ones that relate to diet, can sometimes be perceived as threatening to those that make up our inner circles.  You’ll know the difference when someone takes a genuine interest in what you are doing and when they are simply making note of the fact that you are doing something “different”.  Just remember, they wouldn’t bother to question anything had they not noticed your hard work.  They notice the weight you’ve lost.  They notice the healthy glow in your face.  As we finish out these last few weeks, you are now the change people want to see in themselves.  Rock on!
