Do your intentions dissipate into inaction?
“Obstacles can’t stop you. Problems can’t stop you. Most important of all, other people can’t stop you. Only you can stop you!” There was a time when I would become irritated when I read something like this, but the reality is that it’s true. I was hearing much relief about 2020 being behind us.
