If we understand how we got to the unfavorable destination we are in, then we can trace our steps back. If we know how we got to the favorable destination we are in, then we can decipher how to stay there or go even higher. As a certified Neuro Linguistic Programming Practitioner and Motivational Coach, I am always looking to helping people answer tough questions about relationships, leadership, communication, personal growth, motivation, and faith.
