Today was one if those days. I was exhausted because of a very strong week.

The problem was, my day was not over when I needed to call it a day. So I did what I always do. I found the energy, after which my executive assistant Charmela Freeman asked me "where I found it" (the energy she meant). Here is what my response to her was, as she thought it might help others:

"You can find the energy inside yourself. Little hidden cubbies of hope, belief, self esteem, love and opportunity. You have plenty inside yourself."
