Take Care of Yourself

I see people fall into this trap all the time and I have fallen into the same trap myself on more than one occasion.

What is your Vision?

IS YOUR VISION BIG ENOUGH? “Vision takes provision. If you don’t have provision, you can’t fulfill your vision, because you’re always letting your bank account determine whether or not you can afford your vision.” How can your imagination work on your behalf if we let our current circumstances dictate our future opportunities?
