“Every morning I wake to know that there are 86,400 seconds in every single day and if I ever feel short changed I know that everyone else has the exact same of amount of seconds in their day as I do. Two questions I always ask in my seminars, are “Do you know who you are?” and “Where do you want to go?” more often than not many people know what they want or where they are going but struggle with identifying themselves."
