Philanthropist, Coach, founder and CEO of For The Love Of Money Chris Harder’s advice is pretty straight forward. He believes  Negative influences aren’t always obvious. They can show up as a friend or family member who appears supportive but always sabotages your goals by constantly instigating happy hour, spreading gossip, or telling you it’s “okay” to delay the hard work. If you hope to achieve anything monumental, you need to separate from these people.Confront your issue with them head on, with compassion and tact. Don’t list everything they’re doing wrong. Instead, explain your goals and how you let yourself get off track when they do or suggest specific activities. If they receive it well, great! You may just have had a breakthrough instead of a break-off. If they don’t, at least you’ve said your piece.
