Chase’s final thoughts: How has it been when you’ve been doing the things you love with the people you love? It feels great. When we do that, I call it being on the path. The path isn’t straight and there are no maps, but there’s a compass, which is imperfect. It’s a general direction of where you should be going. It’s amazing how much personal power you get and how much the rest of your life is unlocked.
