Growing Towards Excellence. Would you like to become a better person? If I did a survey asking people this question, I'm sure I would receive 100% response YES!

Many of us have desires and aspirations that we would like to see fulfilled in our lives, but are not actively taking action to make those things happen.

You have only failed if you accept that you have failed. Everybody experiences temporary setbacks from time to time. Use these setbacks as stepping stones towards your success, because they teach you what works and what doesn't work
I was twenty-three, living in London all by myself when my mind began to feel the inside of a carnival funhouse. It felt...creepy. Distorted. Unpredictable. The darkest part of any State Fair.
