"Because nothing can change on the outside, if it doesn’t first change on the inside."







To advance from within is like pursuing continuous research for more, for there’s always more to analyse, more to invent, more to do, more to see.


Once you start, you can never stop! And it’s so exciting and revealing, when you realise that to think bigger, to foster growth while protecting the planet, you need to deal with micro-tools, to aim higher, first you have to go deeper, to see ahead, first you have to look closer, to make the difference, first you have to free your mind from biases, then suddenly, a simple truth will appear, bright and clear: any kind of transformation must start from within, always.
