I read and watched all of these materials when I began this journey. Every book, YouTube video, or documentary had a significant purpose and meaning. I was determined to polish who I was and began a complete transformation and filtered a large amount of new material.  I was new to all of these materials and it took me some time to get a grasp of the content, especially, the finance materials but I ended up enjoying it. The documentaries mirrored what I was going through and I looked for documentaries of people who took risks, how their choices impacted the rewiring of their brain, challenged their minds and body, and broke old habits. The documentaries are about inspiration, trying new things, seeking higher, and never give up. The spiritual texts revealed unanswered questions and this is where I spent most of my time now.
