Always be mindful that 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?
The first step toward getting somewhere is to decide that you're not going to stay where you are. You're not a captive of your environment.
If you don't like where you are, you can make some changes. You're not planted permanently in the ground like a tree. Don't say, "You would, if you could," start saying, "You will, because you can."
When you become a part of anything it becomes a part of you.
