We will examine three quick methods that you can use to “change” your family and friends. These methods will allow you to accomplish this without changing your physical location. You also will not have to stop associating with your family and friends completely.

First, you can join a group on Facebook that has members who share the same goals that you do. You can do that by searching for a group that has the same interest or goal that you do. By doing this, you can engage with the members and exchange ideas. You can also share experiences. The members will be more that ready to give you encouragement and to help you share your successes. They may also have advice for you based upon their own experiences. Overall, this will be a better experience then relying on the support from friends and family. That support in most instances will not be forthcoming.

Second, you can read literature and find other information that talks abut the experiences of people with goals similar to yours. You can take a couple of hours out of your day to dive into this information. This will help you to forget the grumblings of your associates when they ask you “are you still into that thing.”

You can research blogs that are written by people you have found success in your industry. Again, this blog will give you advice and encouragement, offer resources and advice that will advance your efforts. Similarly, there may be a website that does the same thing.
