When does a belief hold you prisoner to yesterday
and limit your options for designing a great future?

as you can bring to the subject.

should become the foundation of your being -
your reason for living.
Take action on those beliefs.

perhaps a nightmare,
perhaps a cherished memory,
but only a dream - nothing more.
I will make all decisions and actions based solely
on what I have today as a starting point."
