I have been reading a very interesting book, written by Robin Sharma titled Life Lessons from the Monk Who Sold His Ferrari and I just wish I had more time to read it, as I can only do 2 pages in a day.

I didn’t know that I was actually thinking/seeing what the writer of this article was also thinking/seeing…well, it can only be God.
