Who needs to get amped up to enjoy a holiday??   Today’s motivational video is one that talks about FOLLOWING-THROUGH on your ideas and goals and actually making things happen.  Any significant endeavor is going to elicit some stress and some pain, but you have to barrel through that and not let it get the best of you.   Enjoy and let’s make this week freakin' awesome!   P.S....
