I don't think the universe owes me anything and I, in turn, don't expect anything from it. @VisualAbundance Yeah, gratitude really changes the way you look at your life, and by extension, the world. @limitlessmindon First learn to embrace change. Then learn to take advantage of it. @urbanhermit7 @theramopt Well said! @therichrun @FirstThePain πŸ‘ @FakeSekou @Entrepreneurfo3 The world doesn't owe you anything. It's important to realise that. @Entrepreneurfo3 True that.When you change yourself, the world automatically changes for you.The heart knows what the heart wants. The mind just tries to reason it out of it. But the heart; it knows.
