I remember when I first got my hands on a self-help book. I was so baffled. At that moment, I realized that my fate was not set in stone. I might be my own Drill Master and Coach. The books I read would set the course for me to overcome the psychological challenges. All I needed to do was listen to the voice that aspired to climb higher and higher.
Every time I committed myself to a new challenge, I knew it was going to be outside my comfort zone. But I also knew, after enough iterations, that it was not just going to be part of my repertoire, it was going to be part of me.
