Most people dream of publishing a book.
When we think about how lucky someone else is in their career, know what happens to our psyche?
We sabatoge it.
We stifle it.
We do many things, except get a grip and understand that at one time, they were exactly where we are now.
And admit that why they are where they are is because they refused to let mistakes, embarrassment, pain, rejection, ridicule, and exhaustion stop them.
How does one know such things?
Tenacity, perseverance, determination, and milestones.
Saying no is not a people pleaser
The art of sucking it up relies on one special secret.
The drive to succeed at a noble cause.
We will do things that exhaust us because we believe the payoff is noble.

Do Not, Under Any Circumstances
Yesterday was an awesome day.
How was yours?
Everyday should be an awesome day, even the ones that pin us down and make it difficult to breath.
Because that’s the way life works.
Pretending it doesn’t is foolish.
Don’t be an educated fool.
