CGP Ep316 #DreamBIG INtention inTENSION

I challenge you all this month to take some time in-front of the mirror. Introspection into the person you were this year and the person you want to be in 2020. To make change you need to add tension to the areas of your life that don’t match the person you want to be. Comfort does not create adaptation. You need to get uncomfortable! To create uncomfortableness requires you to set an INtention to stay inTENSION till your goals are met!
