“The first step toward success is taken when you refuse to be a captive of the environment in which you first find yourself.”
– Mark Caine
It’s funny how sometimes, in order to get where need or want to be, you have to first completely dissolve the perception of where you are.
One’s environment can rudely impose itself into one’s goals. Whether it’s an attachment to comfort and security, or the opposite, like difficult circumstances which seem completely insurmountable, it can be nearly impossible to envision a life that is better, or even different. This is why sometimes, the first thing you have to do to get from here to there is by breaking down the walls, at least the walls of your perception.
When you are no longer tethered by whence you came, it can be easier to freely move towards where you were always mean to be.
