Self-discovery is an important journey. In today’s calloused world, often people don’t realize that life should be enjoyable. We are here for a short time and should have a fun and positive experience. In this video, Chris Yonker tells us of his personal situation as an only child, and his early path to self-discovery. Early on he realized that the better a person he became, the better everything around him also became. He learned through the study of Sanchin-Ryu karate that he was capable of much more than he thought, and that our believed limitations are self-set and not our ultimate potential.

Now a leading consultant and coach himself, Chris Yonker talks in this video about his experience with his coach and the importance of the relationship that rapidly propelled him towards success.
The ultimate freedom that each and every one of us has as human beings is our freedom of choice. It’s what makes us unique and is always present no matter what happens to us, or what we do. In Stephen Covey’s book “The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People,” he talks about this freedom of choice being a part of the Seven Habits.
