“But when their sexual performance starts to decline, suddenly they’re willing to come in and seek help.

“So that is my big why. And everything I do revolves around that. Every decision I make, is it in alignment with my why. And if it’s not, then it doesn’t belong in my life because it doesn’t serve my higher purpose. And so, it helps me get grounded. It helps me really focus on my purpose and it helps drive me to do the hard things that you don’t want to do.” – Dr. Tracy Gapin
