You're a Product of Your Environment

If there is one thing you can do to make sure you win, it's controlling your environment. 

When it comes down to it, you're a product of your environment.

Setting up your environment in a way that makes it easy for you to win is crucial. 

This means that keeping junk food in the house probably won't work. You may think you can have a bag of Oreo's in the house without eating it. But the day you come home from work stressed, tired and starving is the day you will regret keeping them there in the first place. 

Trust me, I've busted down a sleeve or two of Oreo's myself. 

Now, you can't control your environment 100% of the time. Someone will always be bringing donuts and cakes into work each day. 

The key is to control what you can control. 

Eliminate junk from the house. Place the veggies in plain view. If there are donuts in the break room, take a walk mid morning instead of sitting and staring at the donutty temptations. 

Trying to make changes while immersing yourself in situations that work against you is a sure way to make this a lot harder than it needs to be. 

Scan your environments, and set them up so it's easy to win. 

You're a product of your environment, so make sure they're great.
