Food For Thought

Although it is said that we are a product of our environment, do not let environment control you; instead, make sure that you control your environment. Choose the environment that will best develop you toward your objective. Analyse your life in terms of its environment. Are the things around you helping you toward success – or are they holding you back? Avoid situations, acquaintances, associates, who tend to hold you back. - Napoleon Hill

“Complacency is a blight that saps energy, dulls attitudes and causes a drain on the brain. The first symptom is satisfaction with things as they are. The second is rejection of things as they might be. ‘Good enough’ becomes today’s watchword and tomorrow’s standard. Complacency makes people fear the unknown, mistrust the untried and abhor the new. Like water, complacent people follow the easiest course – downhill. They draw false strength from looking back.”
