Surroundings Matter

Do you let yourself dance a little every day?

Surroundings Matter

Do you live in a depressed area?

How about your work environment? Does it sream CREATE or does it feel more like a prison?

What about your home, do you surround yourself with things that foster ideas and growth? It matters!

Your music, your pictures, your decor, your friends – they all matters! Everything you choose to surround yourself with affects you on a minute-by-minute basis.

Don’t surround yourself with haters – choose positive folks instead.

Decorate your personal and work spaces with things that stimulate growth. Choose unique decor that is an expression of your personality and experiences. Let everything in your space tell a story of who you are and who you’re looking to become.

Listen to music that animates you and remember to dance by yourself every day!

Make sure your surroundings are always pushing you toward your aspirations.
