~ William Tiller, Ph.D.

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.

And most importantly, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
They somehow already know what you truly want to become.
Everything else is secondary.

~ Steve Jobs

I found every single successful person I've ever spoken to had a turning point.

The turning point was when they made a clear, specific unequivocal decision

and some people make it at 50,
and most people never make it all.

~ Brian Tracy
