That’s’ what creates what you know, but if you haven’t had certain experiences….” - Tony Waller episode #79</p> <p>“I am who I am because of everyone else around me” - Tony Waller episode #79  </p> <p><strong>Tony’s favorite quotes</strong></p> <ol> <li>“Preach the gospel at all times and when necessary use words” - Saint Francis of Assisi </li> <li>“Each of us is a word spoken by god only once”- Unknown</li> </ol> <p> </p> <p><strong>Tony's 3 keys to Create Your Best Life:</strong></p> <p><strong> </strong></p> <ul> <li>You are meant to great never doubt that</li> <li>It ain’t what they call you it’s what you answer to</li> <li>Never forget that its not about you, its not about your plan its about your role in the great plan.</li> </ul> <p> </p> <p><strong>Stay Connected:</strong></p> <p><strong>Kevin:</strong></p> <p><a href= "http://www.kevinybrown.com/">www.kevinybrown.com</a></p> <p><a href= "http://www.instagram.com/kevinybrown">www.instagram.com/kevinybrown</a></p> <p><a href= "http://www.twitter.com/kevinybrown">www.twitter.com/kevinybrown</a></p> <p><a href= "http://www.facebook.com/kevbrown001">www.facebook.com/kevbrown001</a></p> <p><strong>Tony:</strong></p> <p><a href= "https://www.instagram.com/1solesearcher">https://www.instagram.com/1solesearcher</a></p> <p><a href= "https://www.twitter.com/1solesearcher">https://www.twitter.com/1solesearcher</a></p> <p> </p> <p>Subscribe to our podcast + download each episode on  <a href="http://bit.ly/CYLSitunes">itunes</a>, <a href= "http://bit.ly/CYLSGOGPLAY">google play</a>, <a href= "http://bit.ly/CYLSTITCH">stitcher</a> and <a href= "http://www.createyourlifeseries.com/podcast">www.createyourlifeseries.com/podcast</a></p>
