When you wake up in the morning, in the first few minutes of the day, as you collect your thoughts and prepare, what you tell yourself past ‘I am’ can make or break you.

We all want our friends, coworkers, social followers, and hell, pretty much everybody, to pump us up and make us feel good. It’s natural to want outside acclaim. But as much as someone else can push you to do your best, you can do it for yourself by framing your thoughts. It starts with ‘I am’.

Think about it this way- whether you think you can or can’t, you’re right. What you tell yourself is how you will operate. If you think you are a piece of shit- guess what?
