Being the Best You That You Can Be

No ceilings

I am a very firm believer in that if you do not first envision yourself as great, you will most likely not achieve greatness.

It all starts with a vision. With your imagination you create your own rules, whether you realize it or not. You can transfer those rules you’ve imagined into reality.

Steve Jobs once said that, “Life can be much broader, once you discover one simple fact, and that is that everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use. Once you learn that, you'll never be the same again.”

I've begun to apply this principle lately in my everyday life. It’s powerful to say the least. Most importantly, it’s true.

And as many have said before, a lot of times the biggest barrier to your success is your own self. This new way of thinking is the key to moving past this barrier.
