I believe that a life of integrity I the most fundamental source of personal worth.

Lose/Win people bury a lot of feelings. And unexpressed feelings come forth later in uglier ways. Psychosomatic illnesses often are the reincarnation of cumulative resentment, deep disappointment and disillusionment repressed by the Lose/Win mentality.

The reflection of the current social paradigm tells us we are largely determined by conditioning and conditions. Stephen Covey
Download Wallpaper:

Anytime we think the problem is 'out there,' that thought is the problem. We empower what's out there to control us. The change paradigm is 'outside-in' - what's out there has to change before we can change.
