The ladder of success can feel pretty tall and steep sometimes, right?

Author and leadership guru Dean Graziosi often uses the term success tax when referring to the struggles that come in pursuit of a dream.  

In order get the most out of life, we have to consistently show up and put in the work. 

We don't get fit simply by buying expensive running shoes or joining a gym.

You can't get there by bus, only by hard work and risk and by not quite knowing what you're doing. What you'll discover will be wonderful. What you'll discover will be yourself. - Alan Alda


Pay Now, Play Later

There are few shortcuts to success.

There will certainly be times when we must endure tasks or even a position that is undesirable. Such challenges often separate those who will succeed from those who give up. 

There are no traffic jams on the extra mile. - Zig Ziglar
