Richard Thorpe: If you’re a first-gen, you can’t protect your children from adversity for the duration of their life, it’s just not gonna happen.
Richard Thorpe: what’s the psychology of a successful professional athlete? They think themselves
Jan Gerber from Paracelsus Recovery: if you are anxious about the future, consciously or subconsciously, it takes away energy from you
