Created with innate desire to be happy = to Become Better Version of yourself
• Every action is helping or hurting – NO LUKEWARM
• You can be TRUTHFUL with yourself or you can avoid the TRUTH
• Too Busy because you CHOOSE to be too BUSY (Bound Under Satan’s Yoke)
• Activity does not lead to happiness it is a CHOICE
• You will NEVER be happier than your level of SELF DISCIPLINE.....
