August 31, 2021 pwm1

One hundred people could be given a book on the secrets of success. Fifty would discard it as rubbish and not even finish it. Forty more would appreciate the messages being delivered. The remaining ten would internalize and adopt the teachings, stoking their own internal fire until success was achieved.     

—Mike Hazell
