It’s true.

Misery really does love company.

This is why people will discourage you when you try to improve your life.

I often encounter this when people discover that I’ve never bought a new car. I’ve always believed that a high quality used car is a better deal than a new one that loses 25% of its value the day you drive it home. (This was later confirmed by financial guru Dave Ramsey in Financial Peace, and by Tom Stanley in The Millionaire Next Door.) Yet the people who make fun of me for this are those who are drowning in debt, including huge car payments.

I also encountered this when I went on a low carb diet. I was amazed at how quick people were to tell me the diet was unhealthy and that I should get off of it immediately. Many were graphic in describing how all the red meat would kill me. But none of those critics cared enough to learn that I actually ate more fish and chicken once I started the diet, and far less red meat than before I started it.

My cholesterol dropped dramatically and I lost over 50 pounds. I find it interesting that none of those critics ever said, “Glenn, you’re fat and it’s bad for your health. You need to lose weight!” before I went on the diet. Their criticism only came once I tried to improve my situation.

The same will happen to you when you try to improve your career. There’ll be people in your life that will actually discourage you from working harder.

They’ll say innocent-sounding things like “Don’t get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life” or “Don’t forget to smell the roses along the way”.

They’ll claim to be concerned about your well-being. But if they were really concerned, they’d ask what your goals are and offer you encouragement.

Their real concern might be that they look lazy if you work too hard.

The quality of your life will always be in direct proportion to the quality of the people in your life, so choose very, very carefully.

As Dave Ramsey says, “Thoroughbreds don’t run with donkeys”.


To Your Success,

P.S.
If you look closely, you’ll notice most of those people telling not to forget to smell the roses along the way can’t afford many roses to smell.
