The Year 2016: Personal Challenges! – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

T he New Year will bring its own challenges. What does it mean for the average person?

The tablet of Steve Jobs offers a good guide. Jobs says, ‘ Your time is limited, don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other opinions drown your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become.
