So which way is up? Up is lighting a fire within your soul; talking to yourself and motivating yourself to do better. Up is distancing yourself from some of the people who may have contributed to you getting in the hole in the first place. You are, afterall, the average of your five closest friends. Up is taking a long look at the person sitting next to you – on your right and on your left – your ‘friends’ and asking is their friendship worth the price! Will a continued friendship light a fire under your feet? Will they bring out the best in you? Will they pull and push you toward your greatness or toward the next party? That’s for you to determine! You must motivate yourself.
