Let’s start with PASSION!
It is essential to have passion in order to achieve the success you crave. But, contrary to popular opinion, passion doesn’t perform miracles in isolation. You can’t just be passionate about something and expect everything to fall into place.

And one day, you’ll find yourself hot to trot! Which means your inner STRENGTH muscle is shaping up very nicely! Guess what? PASSION will be a mere trot around the corner..
And what about PATIENCE?
You might be all fired up with passion leading the way, you have toned your strength muscle nicely. You’re on your way! However, you’re also going to need oodles of PATIENCE for the dips that you don’t seem to be popping out of quickly enough. Those times when you’re wondering…
