Are you clear on the questions you'll ask yourself at the end of your life? This is how I found mine, and transformed my life.

When I was 19, I was suicidal after the breakup with the first woman I ever loved. It was a scary and dark time. Ironically, a car accident pulled me from the emotional wreckage of my life. This is that story.

Fave quote:
"‘Did I live? Did I love? Did I matter?’ As soon as I realized that those were the questions that I’m going to use to evaluate myself at the end of my life, it gave me what my late mentor Wayne Dyer taught: the Power of Intention. When you know how you’re going to evaluate your life at the end, you have real intention and mortality motivation, and that’s when everything changes."
