The Rule: Knowledge is Power

+ 20 things exercise

This post was inspired for me by a video I watched on youtube from Brian Tracy, where he said success is predictable. That just like cooking, it just required you to study the people that are the most successful at what you do, and follow it like a recipe. I never forgot that advice.

Few months back, when I give a new friend the link to my Etsy store, the first comment she makes is “You really like roses, don’t you?”.
