During my most formative adolescent years, my home situation left me as a prime candidate to fall in with the wrong crowd and head down a really self-destructive path. Instead, I lucked into finding a structured program and a supportive community that lined up with my childhood dream, and by extension, stumbling onto a path that would forever convince me of how identity-based change can transform anyone's life for the better.
This is a great, inspirational account. It reminded me of my path toward computers, though that journey wasn't dramatic.
The thing that stuck me the most is the fact that your atomic habits empowered you to pivot when the first choice was not viable.
...very inspiring jon...it is a great reminder that we can be what we want to be at anytime, but we have to commit to it...self reflection on our character and actions can be the great determinant on who or what we are or are becoming...super useful...now i will go back to becoming a garbage pail kid...
