The Secret of Successful People

What is the secret ingredient that allows some to be more successful than others? The secret is what pictures we hold in our head. We think in pictures. Think of the place you live, your car, an upcoming vacation. We even dream in pictures. The pictures in our heads always create the actions of our lives. We always act out the pictures in our head. These pictures are stronger when they are crystal clear and repeatedly impressed upon the mind.

Make May the Month for RDSP Awareness!

A Campaign That We Have Can Support

Do you have a relative or a friend diagnosed with a disability? If so, you are not alone. There are around 3.8 million people in Canada having limitations performing daily activities due to a permanent or partial health condition (mental and/or physical).
