How important is your circle of influence -- the people you hang with? Are important is it to have strong goals? Here is what MJ had to say about it keeping focused:
"You have to stick to your plan. A lot of people try to pull you down to their level because they can’t achieve certain things. But very few people get anywhere by taking shortcuts. Very few people win the lottery to gain their wealth. It happens, but the odds certainly aren’t with them. More people get it the honest way, by setting their goals and committing themselves to achieving those goals. That’s the only way I’d want it anyway."
