There are countless people who neglect the preparation process needed to build a prosperous livlihood. They curse their luck or rant against “the system.” They miss opportunities that come their way because they’ve made no attempt to understand how the world of business really works. Such people will drift steadily lower on the social and economic scale. Fortunately, there are many more who abhor the idea of being mere drifters on the sea of life. Such people appreciate that their desires are indeed available to them and will move forward with determination to grab the rewards so well within their reach. You can reach the peak of your ambitions if you diligently nurture your existing skills, cultivate important new ones, and strive to decrease your weaknesses.
