Let me put this in perspective for you: there are those people in your life that will support, encourage, and want to help you build your dreams. There are others that will naysay, criticize, and hurt the prospect of the dreams you want to build. We'll call the first set Life Riders and the last set we'll call Bondage Handlers. Your dreams of financial freedom and abundant living can be predicated by the people you are with and where your mindset is right now. Is your immediate circle telling you every chance they get that you can repair your credit, that you can apply for that house, that you don't have to buy a car from a buy-here-pay-here lot, that you are a child of the most high God, and "that all things are possible through Christ Jesus which strengthens you"? Listen carefully, sometimes the people we want to be Life Riders are actually Bondage Handlers. If I have $20,000 in the bank I want you to have $20,000 also, if not more. The body of Christ can not be divided by envy and jealousy and certainly not by trying to outdo one another. We must be on one accord to reach the next dimension. When you look at your "people" it's time to decide who's on your side. May your Life Riders be the people that are imperative to the fulfillment of your purpose and destiny in life: planners, teachers, commitment keepers, consistent in their attitude, behavior, and image of Christ. God will help you to eliminate who is stagnating you, trust in His Living Water.
Read the story of the man whose friends lowered him through the roof to get to Jesus. They were Life Riders. Mark 2:1-12, Holy Bible
