Crucial Question: Who Do You Believe That You Are?

  Yesterday I made a short video about how my view of myself had shifted and how that had affected my actions. This morning, as I listened to a local sports talk host whom I enjoy, he began talking about the old adage, “Dress for the job you want, not the job you have.” That tied in nicely.
