To look deep within you for answers that may be hidden from the naked eye is just one means of self-renewal. We are all on a journey in life, so it is important to determine which road map you are on. You may be on a road map that has been predetermined to you by your family or an organization that you console. Or you may be a person who wants to uncover this journey on your own, to go after the truth that only your fingerprints can recognize. In either case, we have to know that the information and the external stimuli that we are introduced to may impact us in ways that can make us strong or hinder our pursuit. The ways in which we react to these forces will determine our character.
