I like this lesson. It focuses the mind. It makes you use what you have. It does not allow you to make excuses. Because you have little does not mean that you can not create something new. This lessons changes your mindset from one of what is not possible for a range of reasons to one that creates despite limitations based on the pure will of your mind.See More

Rather, it takes domestic and well educated responses that address the factors that drove a culture to suffer so, such as from…See More
