“Remember, you …

“Remember, you are the same today as you will be in five years, except for two things: the people you meet and the books you read. Choose both carefully.”
– Charlie “Tremendous” Jones

Reading seems to be my theme the last couple of weeks.  Someone shared this quote with me today and it marries two ideas that I adhere to very closely.  Who you spend time with and what you read, changes you and shapes you in ways you don’t even realize.  Who are the five people you spend the most time with?  Do those five individual lift you up and encourage you?  Do they push you forward to bigger and better dreams, goals and accomplishments?  Or do you feel like some or (hopefully not) all of them weigh you down and don’t allow you to be the best YOU that you can be?

And what were the last five books that you read?  Did they inspire you and give you new tools and new ways of thinking to reach your goals?  How did that last book you read serve you to be the best YOU that you can be?

Something to think about today….
