Strategic Essentials

Business Motivation – April 28, 2010

You Are Your Environment

The first step toward getting somewhere is to decide that you’re not going to stay where you are. You’re a product of your environment. So choose an environment that will best develop you toward your objective.

Analyze your life in terms of your environment. Are the things around you helping you toward your success, or are they holding you back?

You’re not a captive of your environment. If you don’t like where you are, change it. You’re not planted in the ground like a tree. Don’t say, “You would, if you could,” say, “You will, if you can.”

When you become a part of anything, it becomes a part of you.
