Achieving Your Goals: The Story of Why

Deep in the Amazon there lies a tree of truth. Anyone who brews from this tree will be given all of the answers to their quest.

A sous-chef Aaron, sought out to the tree. There, he brewed his tea and fell into a deep slumber. He entered a world filled with light and hope.
