I came across this video on some social network, like many things in life it seemed to come at just the right moment.

Not sure if it’s just one of those moments, you know, when you really needed for something to come along and slap you back into a balanced reality.

I was bitch slapped by this video and I went on to read his insightful book The Power of Full Engagement.

The book distills many of the elements of this video, pointing us towards a more balanced life, reminding us of the importance of renewal.

If you like the video, get the book.
