Trending Now...

Have you ever wondered what someone else is thinking? I'm not talking about when someone cuts you off in traffic, or your child paints a curse word on grandma's wall. I'm talking about at the core of their being... what is it that concerns that person? What drives them. Or maybe more importantly... what is it that scares them? Because fear can be an amazing motivator.

Aim high. Run fast.
