If Thor can learn to PUT DOWN HIS WEAPONS AND PICK UP HIS TOOLS, so can you!

PUT DOWN YOUR WEAPONS. PICK UP YOUR TOOLS.

Many of us have grown up believing that weapons such as violence, slander, manipulation, gossip, deceit, and intimidation are our best option for building the life we want.  But these weapons can only make you feel secure in the moment!  Weapons can't build a shelter that will last a lifetime and keep you safe while you learn and grow. That's what tools are for!
Character qualities are the tools you need to build the life you want!

HERE THEY ARE! COLLECT ALL 16
