Now, if you are determined to not just survive but to achieve results that are beyond your comfort zone, you must constantly feed your mind with more and more positive energy to fully establish the new beliefs that will assist you in achieving your goals.

This is why it’s so important to spend your time with as many positive people as possible….doers rather than moaners, strategists, warriors rather than people who can only focus on frustration. Your mind is like a sponge. It elaborates what the senses bring to it and then gives everything back.
