1. Your habits can make or break you. Every action is a brick, meaning it’s what you do on a daily basis that determines the house you end up with. You are the house you build.

2. You are what you read. If your body is a reflection of what you eat, then your mind is a reflection of what you read and study. Fill it with good stuff–not candy, like social media.
