Connection of Leadership Traits
I just started to see the world as it really is and it completely shocked me and changed my opinion on everything... on life and my values and certainly my own sense of self
It's such a freeing thing to set these challenges for yourself, to travel, to learn more about the world, to just go out there and get crazy get free and get strong.
