There’s untapped potential in every one of us. Every one of us has the opportunity to make a permanent and positive impact on those around us. Every one of us has the ability to achieve even more than we can even dream of. Every one of us has the opportunity to become … A Legend. Time is passing by, and slowly we are losing our opportunity to maximize our potential and not get to the next level. There is so much we want to get done, and the to-do list never seems to get shorter. It’s time to change that.
