So one of the best ways to make personal change a reality is to tell other people about the change you want to make. Your environment and the people you're associated with can affect your ability to change. They can either be behind you or they can be negative, and try to block you from making that change. So you want to make sure that you engage with people who have a positive attitude towards change and want the best for you so that it will enable a successful change to occur.
