Shed what distracts or complicates.

Subtract thoughts or ideas that keep the main things from being the main things.

What are your big dreams this year?

Do you have the indomitable will to do the things you’ve never done before?

Ever think about what it must have been like for our forefathers to tame this land we call America, or any land for that matter?

To tame it.

To make it work for them instead of being an overwhelming obstacle.

My big dream is to help others find their indomitable will.  Have been working very hard at this for a long time.
