Who You Associate With Determines Your Success

I learned this lesson early: Surround yourself with great people who’re smarter than you and have achieved what you’re hoping to.

Why You Don’t Reach Your Goals

I’ll spare you the fluff and get right into it. You and I fail to achieve our goals because we accept excuses in place of results. We get so caught up in believing our own line of BS (excuses) that results elude us. Our focus goes from engaging in activities that move us closer to […]
