You may think you’re a “mouse instead of a man”… you may find
yourself caught in the rat race… you may find yourself twisting

which is which until you reach a wall. All you can do is make each step thoughtful and
full of purpose.

Think in more dimensions
You lock yourself into the maze when you think that the walls are boundaries. No one
says you have to let them confine your progress. Stop thinking in limitations. There’s
