Vision… (short read)
Opportunities are boundless to the one constantly seeking opportunities. In the end we will be judged not by the risks we did not take but the lives we did not change when we had the opportunity to. The mind is an amazing and powerful organ. Like a Polaroid camera, it can only develop negatives (eventually into pictures) it hasContinue reading “Vision… (short read)”
