The path of leaving work behind is littered with obstacles and at times your efforts can seem entirely fruitless.
If you are reading this, you may well be considering throwing the towel in. If you think that you’ve had enough, then you may as well close your browser down now and turn the television on.
Still with me? Great!
That’s all we need — the small ounce of staying power that still exists in you. We can develop that into something much stronger. As long as there is still a scrap of determination left in you, we can exploit it to better your chances of success.
I can spend all day telling you to persist and work hard, but by now, you will probably feel like those paths are well worn by the dusty boot heels of your failure. You need something more. That’s what I plan to give you.
