# Produce, do not procrastinate.
# Manage your energy not your time.
# Perfection is merely a facade that steers you in the wrong direction.
# Personal innovation is the key to any type of life success.
# Thoughts precede actions, which precede change. Care + Commitment = Change…
# Now is everything. Perseverance is power. Inspiration is everywhere.
# All that needs to be known dwells inside your own heart. Tap into that knowledge within, and trust that knowledge. Be confident in yourself and your power to choose your own perspective. You have more power than you know what to do with in your life. Harness that potential, and your limits will know no bounds.
# Invest in yourself. Personal knowledge and self-discovery are invaluable. Don't limit your potential by limiting your personal treasury. You are your greatest ally and asset.
# From a place of clarity, you can move forward with freedom and creativity.
