Personally, I've been a fan of pushing my limits. Everytime I say I can't do something, I make an effort to get that out of my vocabulary. The word can't is a dangerous word. It's the reason why many of us are not happy where we are in life, yet alone happy.
Till has been a student of psychology since his fascination with therapy. He has both studied in university and from some of the best minds in the field today.
