This post is rated Sprinters, Olympians and Ironman. “IF you want something that you have never had before you must do something you have never done before.” I recently read this statement in Bob Beaudine’s book “The Power of Who.” The point that Bob was making is that new things don’t JUST HAPPEN. I loved […]
