YOU BECOME LIKE YOUR ENVIRONMENT
You are the product of your environment.
So choose the 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 success,
or are they holding you back?
Every experience in life, everything you come in contact with,
is a chisel which has been cutting away at your life stone,
molding, modifying, shaping it.
You are part of all you have met.
Everything you have seen, felt, heard or thought
has had its effect in molding you, shaping you.
Your outlook upon life, your estimate of yourself,
your estimate of your value are largely colored by your environment.
Your whole career will be influenced by your surroundings,
by the character of the people with whom you come in contact every day.
Your first step to success is taken when you refuse to be captive
to the environment in which you first find yourself.
The first step toward getting somewhere is to decide
that you're not going to stay where you are.
We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us.
