What is the number 1 thing in the world everyone wants? Can you answer that? What does everyone want so desperately? I believe that the answer, quite simply, is: MORE.
Everyone wants more of the good things that life has to offer, right? Well, to get more, we need to activate our full potential. We need to hit a higher gear and become high performers at whatever we do. We have to become more focused, productive, influential, and successful.
