Voice: Once you begin to discover who you are then you really realize how you have been given authority over your life. But you can only do that through the struggle of life, and most people are born to struggle. Most people go through life avoiding pain. When you’re working on a dream, at some point in time a transition takes place. You learn how to leap higher and you start challenging yourself to dig deeper. Something in you that you never activated lies dormant in there. Don’t try and take any shortcuts, do what you know is right. You’ve been chosen for this great work.
