"Everybody that's riding with you ain't riding for you. Let the gas run out and see who helps you push."
This statement couldn't be more true of how users operate. When things are going well, even if they didn't contribute, everything's all good and they sit back and benefit from your hard work. But as soon as the road gets bumpy they bail and blame you for their incompetence and lack of drive, grit and hustle. These type of people ALWAYS need you more than you need them, but they TRY to make it seem as if you need them.
Drive is an innate characteristic. EIther you have it or you don't. It can't be faked or camouflaged. You have to want it and make the necessary sacrifices in order to obtain it. You cannot sit back and simply gain off of others success. At some point you have to go get it yourself. If you don't want to put in the work when times are hard then you cannot expect ME or anyone else to care.
Surround yourself with people who drive you, motivate you and mutually respect you. If you see that people who you've helped give others (who don't care about them) more respect than you then they are showing how they feel about you. Believe em' the first time.
