“When we are willing to drop the armor and weapons that imprison us from a
life of abundance, we discover we’ve been holding the keys all along and simply
have been asleep at the wheel. Self-awareness is the fuel that fills our tank and
enables us to steer our life to the destination of our dreams.”
