Tony Robbins says that the most important question you can ask is “What is your why?” Well, this is ours, completely raw, real and unedited. Trigger warning: it’s not super happy fun time, but it’s true. It’s our reason for doing what we do. It’s our reason for getting out of bed happy and excited and our central driving force. It’s also the source of our compassion. It’s a reminder that light can shine even into the darkest places of our lives.
