Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

“The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled.” – Plutarch

Welcome to this week’s edition of Nate’s Monday Morning Message…the mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled. Every day we learn something new, we fill our minds with a variety of media, emotions, thoughts…sometimes we are intentional, however most of the time we put life on autopilot and coast through. What if we had more moments where we were intentional in what we filled our minds with? How would that change our day, our week, our lives? This week I challenge you to be intentional in your actions, in your thoughts and what you fill your mind with. Kindle to the fire that sits between your shoulders and let’s see what a difference we can make. Let’s make it a great week!

“The secret of success is learning how to use pain and pleasure instead of having pain and pleasure use you. If you do that, you're in control of your life. If you don't, life controls you.” - Tony Robbins
