Environment is among the most powerful and important personality levers. If you’re serious about changing yourself and your life, you must change your environment.*
Show me the hidden things, the creatures of my dreams, the storehouse of forgotten memories and hurts. Take me down to the spring of my life, and tell me my nature and my name.**
We are not only an innovating species, we are also being innovated.
Certainly across the span of history but, thankfully, across the span of a lifetime.
To polish our outside is an easier thing to do, mind, but to innovate who we are inside is more beneficial.
