Hi, it’s Dr. Fab Mancini, and I’m so excited for this season, because we’re dedicating it to you.

Yes. I’m doing the topics that you’re letting me know are the topics that you want me to do, that are more relevant in your life.

And this one comes from Mada, in Bucharest, Europe.

Hi Mada.

She writes, “Dr. Fab. How do I help a friend recognize a need to change?”

Now I know all of us have been in a position where we have friends that maybe perhaps need a little bit of change in their lives, but you know, I learned that sometimes you can’t change people that don’t want to change themselves.

But I remember a friend of mine, Ricky.

You know, Ricky was exactly that person.

You know Ricky was in high school with me in the 80s in Miami, Florida.

And one of the things that he decided to do, in order to be liked, in order to have more money, was to deal drugs.

And after a couple of months of dealing drugs, he was doing a drug and unfortunately they shot him and killed him at 17 years old.

I could have saved him.

I want to share with you three things that you can do right now to help those friends around you.

The first one is, make sure you bring to their attention, is what they’re doing working for them?

Many times they don’t recognize it because they’re on autopilot, but if you can make it to their attention that they’re not getting the results they want, maybe they’ll be more willing to change.

The second is, make sure that you’re helping them change their environment.

Studies have shown that when we change the environment, we change who we are.

So make sure that you help them in that process, especially by inviting them to healthier environments.

And the last one is, be there for them when they fall.

Because you know what?

Some of us as friends are stubborn.

And we may resist that change all the way through.

Just make sure that you’re there for your friend when they fall.

I hope you enjoyed this and I’ll see you on the next show.
