Over 70% of Americans are unhappy in their careers and only 27% are working in the fields for which they earned a degree. Less than 10% of people who buy a book or a course complete it, and of those that do, only a handful apply the information to create lasting change. There’s a problem here. The greatest regret people have at the end of their lives is not following their dreams. It’s not the mistakes we make, it’s the risks we didn’t take, the music we didn’t create, the living we didn’t do. That’s a tragedy to me. Tony Robbins says that the 2 greatest fears in life are of not being good enough and not being loved. Those fears keep us from doing the things we want to do, and make us settle for less than we deserve.

You’re successful, but feeling trapped and miserable; where do you go from here?
