Guest Spot on Lifeology with James Miller

Do you remember the goals and dreams you used to have? When we were younger, we had hopes and dreams for our lives. Unfortunately, life happened. For many of us those hopes and dreams are in the past; we’ve settled for mediocrity and think that life will always be like this. The type of person you’d like to marry, the business you’ve always wanted to start, or finishing your degree, these are but distant dreams. Your dreams can come true. Remember who you are.
