Small shifts lead to big results.
When it comes to self-development, it’s the small stuff that often makes the biggest difference.
Too often, people think about big changes in terms of big decisions. They think it’s a sweeping action that moves the needle, when really it’s the incremental steps made on a day-to-day basis. Success, then, has far more to do with daily habits–not home runs.

The people you confide in? The people you trust? The people you share everything with? Protect that with your life. As soon as you let toxicity in, it becomes difficult to get it out. Protect yourself and the people around you by being aware of the energy people bring to the table.
