Million of people are diet conscious. We're a calorie counting nation. We spend a lot of money on vitamins and supplements, and we all know why.
We all know that the body reflects the diet we have. Physical stamina, body size, and even how long we live are all related to what we eat. The body is what the body is fed. The same goes for your mind. The mind is what the mind is fed. "Mind food" is not packaged and you can't buy it at a store. Mind food is your environment. Everything that we listen to, watch, and read feeds our mind and determines our habits, attitude and personality.
Think about this, what if you were born in a foreign country? What kind of food would you like? Would the clothes you wear be the same? Would the work you do be different? Most likely yes. You would probably be a different person because you would of been influenced by a different environment. Like the saying goes, "You are a product of your environment."
Our environment shapes us. If we spend too much time with people with a negative attitude we start thinking negative. The same goes if we hang out with people with big ideas, we will raise the level of our thinking. The person you will be in 5 years depend almost entirely on your future environment.
