While I was absorbing copious amounts of YouTube content, I learned that if I really wanted to start seeing positive changes in my life I shouldn’t be afraid of staying up until 3 a.m. I really wanted to see a change so I followed this guidance for a little over a month.

“It was always me versus the world, Until I found it’s me versus me’”- Pulitzer Prize winner Kendrick Lamar on his album DAMN. I’ve been making excuses for a long time, blaming the circumstances of my life for not living a life that I am proud of. I failed to realize that the way to change my circumstance was to change my mindset.
