John Coutis


My biggest fear is to be called NORMAL, I don’t about you, but that makes me feel rather inadequate. I was not put on this earth top be NORMAL and I’m not gonna let anyone with a NORMAL mindset tell me what I can and cannot do I was born for GREATNESS and to be the best I can be and so are YOU!!!
