“I get inspired by seeing people doing big things and thinking bigger.”
“So much of life is about moving forward.”
“If your procrastinating about something start on it for 10 minutes and see how fast it can flow”
“So many people don’t get started because of a fear. I think starting eliminates a lot of the fear or at least it shows you what do be afraid of.”
“Fear is okay and being afraid to so something is okay, but you still have to do it if you want to reap the benefits.”
“There is so much more and wonderful when you focus on the good.”
” We just love to live.”
