If you follow football and its controversial stories, you’ll probably know the sad story of Aaron Hernandez.

Patriots tight end…$40 million contract…Everything going for him in the world. Now it’s all over, and his daughter will grow up without a father.

Some say his problem was he ran with his old friends – friends he knew in high school and friends who had criminal histories.

These are people who aren’t a good influence on him, and they sucked him back into a world he should have escaped with his wealth and influence.

Money, fame, and the NFL couldn’t stop Aaron Hernandez from doing something or being somewhere he never should have been.

Are you surrounded by people who take you back to the past?

How many of you are trying to work on yourself? Trying to find new ways to meet women? Learning how to better yourself, improve your levels of success and accept your faults?

How many of you are attempting to really learn a new belief system – a belief system that you know deep in your own heart will enable you to live the life you want to live?

These are beliefs that will help you meet the partner you want to meet, fall in love, have a family or whatever your end goal may be.

How many of you, every single time you go out, go out with a group of guys that basically take you back to the past? Are they the ones who make you feel the way you used to feel and solidify an old belief system that no longer works for you?

“When we bring our past into the present

like Aaron did, bad things start to happen.”

How many of you do that?

Most of us are constantly trying to escape our old beliefs. We’re constantly trying to learn and grow away from them.

But if your support team keeps bringing you back to the old story, what happens is no different than what happened to Aaron Hernandez.

Granted, you may not pull the trigger and you may not be involved in a murder case.

But in reality, you’re actually murdering your chances to change. Murdering your chances to become the man you want to become.

It’s all about changing your mindset, but you need to have the support system around you to enable you to do it.

I’d like all of you to share stories with me today. Let me hear about who you surround yourself with.

Do your friends support the new you, or do they bring you back to the old you that you want to escape?

Our past is just a series of old stories. When we bring our past into the present like Aaron did, bad things start to happen.

The bad things are definitely not as extreme as what happened to him, but you get the whole point I’m making.

It’s time to surround yourself with people who support who you want to be in life.
