How to Overachieve Your Goals

How to Overachieve Your Goals

Piece of cake

  It seems like most of the people who inhabit the earth today are happy with just getting by, getting through, and getting just enough.

Hunter, Scavenger or Prey: Which Life Are You Living

Photo © lassedesignen - Fotolia.com   What does the way you speak say about who you are?  I have a better question:  What would you like the way you speak to say about who you are?
