Motivational Speaker Dave Crane - How To Win All Your Battles Today…
You can only read life backwards.
History is forever and already set in stone.
The past is a learning curve full of insights, successes and lucky experiences that you may be forgiven to think it was driven by chance.
But it wasn’t.
Your life is driven by your choices, unexpected events and what you decide at any given time to do about them.
