Sometimes, you just have to go all in. When you don’t give it your all… it’s very easy to find yourself in an awkward place. For example, you are always unsure of what you should do next.

Creating permanent change in your life is no easy task. It’s also not a “one-time” task either. In order to bring long-lasting positive change, you are going to be doing a set of tasks, on an ongoing basis.
