      Hi Amadi
      Glad you enjoyed the quotes
      If you want to do something in life, you don’t get better at it by not doing nothing about it
      You need to take action – start small
      Guest post on websites
      Start your own website – free resources online
      Motivational talks – record videos on YouTube – give talks locally
      Get doing and then that will help you become more within yourself
      And happiness within is a state of mind, remember that point
      What’s stopping you from taking action?
