The secret to success, the secret to life… is that there is NO secret. Or at least not one “big” secret; merely dozens, hundreds of little secrets that you already know, just might not be doing or doing enough, consistently, with good vibes. As the saying goes, the secret of your future can be found in your daily routine.
The secret of life lies in the details, in showing up every day and doing the best you can and maybe a tiny bit better the next day. The secret is intelligent persistence. The secret is accepting responsibility for your life and the consequences of your choices. The secret is committing to a lifelong journey of self-discovery and never-ending learning, to always be growing, raising your EQ.

As always, I share what I most want and need to learn. – Nathan S. Collier
