The answer is out there. You’re not the only one facing the problem that is in your way right now. Others have been there before and figured it out.

You’re there now. And even though it feels like your situation is all-consuming, the answer is out there waiting for you to discover it.

It’s not going to come to you automatically. You have to seek it out.

You have to be obsessed about the answer.

Here is the most important thing to remember — without humility you won’t find your fix.

You can’t pretend like you have it all figured out, and actually figure it out. You have to pick one.

Success requires you to be vulnerable. To admit that you have a problem and are desperate for solution.

That’s not easy or automatic. Especially if you bold and determined.

Your natural reaction is to throw back your shoulders and pretend to everyone else around you that you don’t need help.

That you have it going on. That you’re the person who needs to teach, not learn.

And that’s exactly why you’re still stuck. That’s why you’re frustrated.

Your answer is out there. You just won’t find it acting that way.

When you’re ready to change, the answer will appear. When you’re humble and ready to learn, you’ll see the solution.

You’ll find the answer. Until then, we’re going to stay stuck.
