“The hard days are what make you stronger.”
Do you have days when you feel zero motivation? You think about the things you need to do, yet you are feel no motivation at all. You really want to be productive but you can’t get yourself to do anything…

“…don’t let your past experiences be the reason you shortchange yourself…”
A few weeks after I got to South Africa, my aunt told me that I needed therapy. She saw what she saw and knew this was good for me but coming from what I know and what I “thought” I had dealt with, I kicked against it in …
“if you can learn to focus … for 25 minutes, you can increase your overall productivity,…. you can accomplish more when you are not burnt out”
