Another simple this = that statement. It’s akin to ‘you are what you eat’ and ‘you become what you think’.
It comes down to this. What do you pay attention to? Would you rather go get another 6pack of beer for the cookout or play in the pool with your kids? Would you rather work overtime non-stop or forego a bit of extra cash so you can have a date with your boyfriend or girlfriend? Would you rather watch mean spirited people act like they are real on TV or do some needed project around your house?
You will rise only as far as that to which you pay attention. Where is your attention today?
