Any worthy goal, including writing your book, will take you to the brink of despair and force you to look into the abyss, to stare failure in the face.
It’s what you do in that moment that determines your fate.

You discover something new about yourself.
You discover this goal, this book, matters… that in a very real sense, your life depends upon achieving this goal, completing this book and doing the even more terrifying thing – publishing it.

Sometimes the best decision we make is to be belligerent and refuse to give up, even though there is no rational reason to continue.
It truly comes down to attitude. You don’t know what you’re truly capable of until you’re pushed past your limits into uncharted waters where you simply refuse to drown. By sheet force of will, you draw another breath and then another, and another after that when everything inside you screams for you to give up.
These are the moments that define our life and our destiny. These are the moments where fulfilment is found.
