It’s great that you love listening to podcast that inspire you or read quotes. But without going out there to get what you want. You have already lost. Try and try again, be rejected , try again and repeat this process until you get at the top.
It’s easy to change a bad habit. When you accept that there is something wrong and figure out what it is. You are better then someone who doesn’t see his mistakes. The second step is to change your mindset and then table plans that will help you get out of the problem and never to repeat it.
