Why is it that some people seem to make 180 degree turns in their lives, going from failure and depression to amazing success? Why do other people make the opposite changes going from success to depression and drug addiction? And why does it seem like a third group of people stay exactly the same as they age? Our lives are defined less by genetics and upbringing than by the stories we tell ourselves and other people about who we are and who we are going to be. I am going to take you on a journey of human potential.
