Quotes: If something happens in a person’s life that he cannot change, or that with which he does not agree, then the only thing he can work on is on himself. I am focused on the inner state of my soul. If a person is not at odds and not in harmony with the soul, then all the imbalance around him occurs precisely for this reason. In order to influence your life and environment, you must first influence yourself.
