Whether one attains elevation or degradation through one's mind depends on oneself only, for the mind can be one's friend or one's foe.-Bhagavad Gita Chp 6.5

Do you change your mind or does your mind change you?

Freedom of choice is a liberty that enables me to contribute to my own elevation or degradation.

Choices are opportunities!

The input I choose in friends, food, books, videos, podcasts, social media is either upgrading or downgrading my life.

My mind reflects the input it receives, so, what kind of mind do I wish to have?

Yoga teaches us to use discernment and discipline in selecting input to download into our mind to keep the senses controlled rather than letting the senses be in control. Depending on my choices, my mind will be a friend or a foe to my elevation and progress in yoga. The choice is mine.
