  • “You choose your input.”
    • Get selective on who you spend time with, what you read, watch, listen to- is it taking you closer to your dreams and aspirations?
    • What you do becomes what you think about, which becomes who you are and turns into your actions everyday 
    • Picture who you want to become and identify what it is they did to get there and try to focus on those things
