How many of you woke up this morning and thought to yourself, today I’m going to be extraordinary? The chances are not too many of you. We think about ourselves as ordinary people leading ordinary lives and yet the reality is that we all have the opportunity to be extraordinary everyday, in whatever way we choose.

To thrive in your career and life, and to be able to give fully to others, you must look after yourself first.
