QOTD #7: What Roles Have You Been Assigned and Don’t Know It?

Many of us, when we first set out to begin manifesting our desires, we make the mistake of focusing on what “carrots” we want…

3 Levels of Awareness: Understanding This About Others Changes Everything!

To a large degree, our emotional intelligence grows in lock-step with our ability to properly see situations and circumstances through the lens of perception.
