Take Action On Your Personal Purpose

One of my many shortcomings is that I hate exercise. I’ve never experienced that adrenalin rush thing that athlete’s talk about. For me, exercise is just sweat and muscle aches, and I don’t enjoy either of those things.  Now rationally, I know that exercise is good for my body and that is why I do it. But I […]
