I recently spoke on another podcast about not letting your past define you.
This is SO important.
It doesn't matter where you came from, it only matters where you are going.
Once you take the first step, don't stop.
You can take that first step a million times, but if you don't take the next, you'll never get where you want to be.
Become a snowball of next steps until you become a wrecking ball of INTENT.
Then, it doesn't matter what gets in your way.
It doesn't matter what you left behind.
It only matters what you pick up along the way.
Be better. Continue to grow. Build a map of next steps that take you from Point A to the point you want to end up at.
Only you are holding yourself back.
If anyone tells you different, they belong in the past you are leaving in the dust.
