    I guess it is true, "You Become your surroundings". Making sure you surround yourself with like minded people will allow you to flourish in life no matter what you are trying to accomplish. Though it can be hard, the benefits of keeping positive people around are endless.

    Love your insight! Patience is the key to building a strong foundation. Sadly, without it our lives can be illustrative of staking decks of cards, waiting for them to suddenly fall apart.

    Great way to use perception to get ahead! The way we look at situations can have us be either more resourceful or detrimental. Remembering, it is best to build a bridge than to burn it because you never know when you will have to cross it.

    Your right! If we just stop what we are doing and really key in on what is important, which is ourselves, then we can definitely overcome any obstacle.

    I think that taking it slow sometimes is the best approach. We usually get so caught up in doing things fast and we're constantly on a timer we forget to take some time to live. Let's enjoy our lives a little bit more, life is not a race, life is a game and we should have fun playing it! :p

    This is absolutely right! It is best that we are taking step one at a time to all the things that we are going to do. It is better that way rather than doing it at a fast paced then in the end it will not be fulfilled. That is why always remember this "Always take one step at a time" and you can never go wrong in your life.

    Yes, I feel incapable almost every day. I feel inadequate almost every day. But I have learned to quickly recognize those thoughts and feelings when they arise, and push them out of my head and force myself to concentrate on positive thoughts instead.
