“More often than not, we grossly underestimate our physical, emotional and spiritual capacities to overcome whatever obstacles we may encounter on our respective life journeys. We predetermine how far we think we are capable of going or are willing to go and then stop just short of or precisely at that point. For that reason (and many others), it is critical that there be someone in our life who is committed to instilling “an opposite voice,” one that loudly, emphatically and unequivocally drowns out its self-limiting counterpart just long enough for us to catch a glimpse of our true potential, and hopefully, creates a desire within us to catch another glimpse, and another, and another.”
