“You are a product of your environment. So choose the environment that will best develop you toward your objective. Analyze your life in terms of its environment. Are the things around you helping you toward success – or are they holding you back?” W. Clement Stone
Occasionally, a thought comes along that is powerful enough to stand on its own. Today’s thought seems to be one of those thoughts.
Considering the influence of our environment is interesting and challenging. On one hand, the type of work environment we choose can provide the encouragement and opportunity that make for stepping stones to great success.
On the other hand, our choice of work environments can shackle us in our own growth. Instead of spreading our wings and soaring to new heights of development, we are hindered from moving into areas that promote progress.
The choice is ours to make, but be cautious. Once the choice is made it can be extremely difficult to alter the course of what unfolds. Take a moment and consider the consequences of our decisions. With a little forethought, everything can be different.
