Our brains are hard-wired a certain way from experiences we have had in our lives that shape us into who we are, though in order to change we must do things that can cause us discomfort and break the hard–wire to re-program the brain on a new path.

A lot of people ask me how I find the motivation to do what I do every day, motivation is a very personal thing and what is motivation for one may not be for another. For me it's the burning desire to make a change in the world, you might be thinking to yourself, wow that is a huge undertaking! However, I'm going at it one man at a time. Which has a reaction that positively changes his marriage which flows into his family, then community and into his town, then state, then country and if you can change a country you can change the world.
