I am daring you to think bigger,
to act bigger and to be bigger.
I dare you to think creatively.

I dare you to share.
I am promising you a richer life
and more exciting life if you do.

Put your stake in the ground and be willing, eager and able to move it.
Link to others’ ideas, thoughts, and feelings.
Create 360-degree vision: Ask others to share their thoughts and experiences and accept their frame of reference as true for them.
