At last week’s retreat our speaker Kripamoya Das shared some wonderful stories and furnished us with brilliant quotes. Already this week I have been making use of his wise words of wisdom for life lessons with clients and friends.
Maybe the moment of crisis belongs to somebody else and it comes at a time to prompt us and remember what our long term objectives are and how we will stop putting them off and start to follow our dream.
