Inspiration from Jimmy John's

As I was eating a delicious sandwich with my family last night, I was mesmerized by this poster that was up on the wall at Jimmy John's.  It was a bunch of simple, yet profound, quotes.  It's inspired me to write some things down and share my thoughts on these.

I believe…

that our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.  (Author Unkown)

Whoa.  I couldn't believe this statement to be more true.  There are few things in life that drive me crazier than people who blame where they are at in life or how they have turned out on their background.  No one had a perfect childhood.  No one.  You are what you make yourself to be.  Don't use your past as an excuse.  Use it to better your life.

You are what you make yourself to be.  Think about it.

  1. agreed...ever noticed that whenever someone fails at something they blame their parents, upbringing, childhood, etc. But whenever anyone succeeds they are always a "self made man." PS I heart Jimmy Johns.
