''Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.'' - Rachel Adams Lee

We all want to lead happy and successful lives, but sometimes in the pursuit of success, we lose sight of what matters most.

So, do your actions line up with the person you really want to be? What could you eliminate that would add something to your life? What could you say “no” to that would bring more “yes’s” into your world?

Rachel’s love for inspiring others, combined with her own unique and powerful journey, led her to create the "Lost to Found in 90 Days" book and program.

''I spend a lot less time worrying about what everyone else is doing, and a lot more time trying to get better at what I’m doing.'' - Jordan Harbinger

I’m super excited for today’s episode, because I’m taking with my friend, Jordan Harbinger.

He has also worked for various governments and NGOs overseas, traveled through war-zones and been kidnapped - twice.
