PART 1 Takeaways from Kelly and Maria:
Quote of the Interview pt. 2
“In finding your purpose, it's like mining. When you hit that strata you know it. You know that you found what really is your purpose and then you just need to mine right the way along that line. Most people never dig deep enough or long enough.”.- Lewis Pugh

Kelly - 1) When we have a driving purpose we can accomplish superhuman feats. 2) Martial arts concept of Shu Ha Ri, Obey the law, break the law, make the law. This is a great road map for achieving extraordinary things.
