A big thank you to Randy Detrick.  "Achieving your childhood dreams.  The 3 P's; Purpose, Passion/Potential, and Procedure.  Purpose is wrapped up in your potential 
Without purpose life has no meaning. Ask the question - What does life expect of me. Understand purpose and live your life to fulfill your potential.  You have hidden powers that needs to be cultivated."
