GYEB – 6) The Road To Success Might Damage My Relationships

A lot of people are under the impression that their relationships are all positive. What if I told you that a
significant chunk of your relationships are codependencies? These are people who basically want you
to remain where you are, frustrated and feeling stuck. How come? It makes them feel better about their
The same goes for your attitude about them. Again it’s a codependent relationship. You know it’s
unhealthy, you know it’s not doing anybody any good but you stay in a relationship. Believe it or not,
codependent relationships are all too common. And unfortunately, a lot of people use these relationships, as dysfunctional as they are, to give themselves an excuse to not put in the work, time, and sacrifice needed to achieve great success in their lives. They feel that they are going to be losing

What do you think they’ll do? Of course, they will take the path of least resistance!
They are lazy but I’m not talking physically lazy. There are a lot of hard working losers out there.
Instead, they’re mentally lazy. Ultimately, if you want to reach the summit, you have to let go of the cave. You have to turn your back on the comfort of the valley and climb up the path to the summit which is filled with danger. There are all sorts of scary things along the path but that’s what makes it
