Each of us comes into the world the exact same way -- but no two people leave it alike. What we become by the time our clock runs out is the result of the choices we make. There are consequences for good choices and consequences for bad choices. Which kinds of...
If Lady Gaga is a “Christian woman,” then I am an eighteen-year-old, Native American female astrophysicist . . .
If you’re not careful, you could go through life thinking your circumstances determine your impact and legacy. Life isn’t about the cards we’ve been dealt. It’s how we play each hand. MLK, Jr. changed the world from a remarkably tiny office. Your attitude, not your resources, determine your impact.
