The Travesty of Self-Deception
Quote of the Day: Life isn’t about maneuvering in a straight upward line. It’s about negotiating the dips, twists, and turns encountered in everyday life thereby removing obstacles standing in your path to claim your noble calling. CMBowen Author

The first sentence in M. Scott Peck’s book, The Road Less Traveled, says “Life is difficult.” What a downer or surprise for those who believe failure is not an option.
Many years ago with the first edition, I wanted to quit reading after the first sentence. My definition of life was the direct opposite. Yet, I continued reading and joined a book study group to get the full force of the meaning and basis for the book. I’ll add here the end results enlarged my thinking to transcend difficulty and surrounded me with lots of warm, fuzzy feelings.
Struggle too many is unacceptable. If it becomes too hard they quit. But, the question comes to mind, how long should you struggle, sometimes leaving a trail of brokenness in your wake? Perhaps, you’re barking up the wrong tree decoded means this business/career is not for you. Highlight: There is a special way for you to showcase your talents. Go back to square one!
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting different results.
If you’re repeating previous failures, stop now and get some help before your upside down peeking out a mouse hole.
Question for Today
How long do you think you should attempt to accomplish a goal? For example, building a business, before quitting?
