Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart... Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.
-Carl Jung

From "Awaken the Giant Within," by Anthony Robbins:

At a very early age, I developed a belief that we're all here to contribute something unique, that deep within each of us lies a special gift. You, see, I truly believe we all have a sleeping giant within us. Each of us has a talent, a gift, our own bit of genius just waiting to be tapped. It might be a talent for art or music. It might be a special way of relating to the ones you love. It might be a genius for selling or innovating or reaching out in your business or your career. I choose to believe that our Creator doesn't play favorites, that we've all been created unique, but with equal opportunities for experiencing life to the fullest. I decided many years ago that the most important way I could spend my life would be to invest in something that would outlast it. I decided that somehow I must contribute in some way that would live on long after I was gone...

Through it all, I've continued to recognize the power individuals have to change virtually anything and everything in their lives in an instant. I've learned that the resources we need to turn our dreams into reality are within us, merely waiting for the day when we decide to wake up and claim our birthright.
