We have the choice to acknowledge our situation, accept responsibility, and choose to do something about it, even if it means cutting loose of something or somebody we care about. Determine today what is holding you back from living an extraordinary life (or a life at all) and let it go.

Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it (Matthew 10:39).
