Some are "too full of themselves" others to empty. Career, money, achievements and external visible and showable success are mere temporary labels of the shell. But who are you really?

Like: yes, I want to improve my Business English but I don´t want to commit to regular Skype coaching classes. Or: yes, I want to feel better in my body, be more fit, but I [...]
