  • Sacrifice Is Strength

    By t. | In Articles, Mindset | on July 2, 2013

    Words have meaning. They spark our thought and produce images in our brains. The use, or misuse, of a word can have positive or negative effects on our mindset and perception. In recent times, sacrifice has somehow become a negative word. Most of the lazy and weak American population sees a sacrifice as something we […]
