ENTJ’s time is limited, so they don’t waste it living someone else’s life. They are not trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. They don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. Most importantly, they have the courage to follow their heart and intuition. They somehow already know what we truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

2016 was the most profound year of my life.

I won’t go into details,

However the result is

that I have committed

the next 50 years of my life

to bringing about a positive,

lasting and measurable shift

in the way we live our lives

on a global scale.

“The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.”

― Rob Siltanen

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you… And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
– Marianne Williamson
