Product Of Your Environment

You can live under your circumstances or above them. You don’t have to become a prisoner of them. There are circumstances in which you have no control of such as your heredity, and others in which you do, such as the decisions you make.

Resist the temptation to think about the limitations your family background or environment creates for you. Regardless of your upbringing or who influenced your life, you can move beyond those limitations by making a conscious decision to be proactive.

Proactive people live life prepared and make the most out of a situation. It’s not until you desire more for yourself and take the appropriate action towards advancement that the right people and opportunities serendipitously appear.


Being Humble


Humility gives a more accurate perspective of oneself and the world.

Some people think that humility means putting oneself down, but humility is not self-degradation.

It is a realistic assessment of who you are and what you represent.

Don’t write off someone who challenges you.

There may be truth in what is said.

Receive the message with humility while carefully thinking it over.

If you discover there’s room for improvement, take the necessary steps to correct the behavior.

When you are humble, you understand your limitations.

Breaking Through Barriers

Our society offers many barriers that divide: race, religion, education, gender, and wealth, to name a few. These are personal obstructions that hinder our growth and block us from each other. Until you care enough to confront and resolve these underlying barriers, you become less effective in fulfilling your purpose.

The strength of what we believe is measured by how much we are willing to sacrifice for those beliefs. We can’t control what others say or do, but we can control our response to it. Some people thrive off of discrediting others. You are the only one that can define who you are despite what others say or seek to influence. When you come to this realization, your life takes on new meaning.

We must resist the tendency to think about the limitations our environment creates for us and find ways to counter it. When we believe in ourselves, there is little that we cannot accomplish.

Envisioning what we want, setting goals to bring that vision to fruition, and watching how it unfolds inspires us to keep moving forward in our quest.
