CURIOUS FACT

Pregnant for how long??

ABSORB THIS

Elephants are giant, loyal and majestic!  How are they so perfect, you ask? Well, one reason is that they spend 22 months (yes you read that right!) in gestation.

Their unique capacity to begin with WHY? empowered them to motivate people around them and to accomplish astounding feats.

Sinek dubs this influential thought pattern The Golden Circle. It is a system that allows for associations to be constructed, developments to be driven, and individuals to be roused.
