It's a mind game and we WILL win over any fear or fears we have! Make that determination and you've won the game!"

    "Leaders do not have to be great men or women by being intellectual geniuses or omniscient prophets to succeed, but they do need to have the "right stuff" and this stuff is not equally present in all people. Leadership is a demanding, unrelenting job with enormous pressures and grave responsibilities. It would be a disservice to leaders to suggest that they are ordinary people who happened to be in the right place at the right time. Maybe the place matters, but it takes a special kind of person to master the challenges of opportunity."

    Inside You Lies Greatness

    In each of you, there is a seed;
    A seed of vast potential,
    A place beyond the ego mind,
    A place so rich and fertile
    That you can smell its rich fragrance
    Like after a cool summer rain.
    You can feel this pulse of life
    As it pulses through you.
    This infinite part of you knows,
    Like a beacon in the night.
    It guides you on your journey...
    Back home...
    Back... to the Real You.
    This greatness requires just one thing,
    Your awareness.
    Awareness through your breath,
    Noticing in each moment,
    How precious life really is
    And how precious You really are;
    For you are it's Source
    And It is your beginning.
    You now stand at the crossroads;
    A crossroads of your old self
    And the Real you.
    Embrace this moment.
    Embrace yourself as the creator in your life.
    This is your essence.
    Breathe it in...
    Let it flow.
    Let it just Be.
    And so it is.
