Another favorite quote of mine is "success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal" by Earl Nightingale. These two ideas introduce some of a perspective on life. First, the capacity of human beings to unlock our one's own potential is understood by few. Often we are preoccupied looking outside ourselves for hope, joy, fulfillment, and purpose when really, our greatest challenge and opportunity is one to understand and lower our barriers preventing the fullness of the human experience to emerge from within. We can cultivate a being and perspective that brings wholehearted mental, emotional, and existential states into fruition in our daily lives.
Our unique experiences of self and purpose are influence by external factors and our own responsibility to determine how we react. I am passionate about helping humans realize and act on their own potential to have fulfilling and satisfying lives.
