A Taoist master once asked this rhetorical question: "What can you not accomplish, if you do it in deadly earnest?"
Deadly earnest is the "tipping point" between success and failure. Lots of people try to change their lives every year and especially in January and September, only to fall back into their old habits.
Why? Because they've never reached the tipping point. This tipping point is an emotional state within. It starts with anger at an intolerable situation in your life.
Then comes the feeling of being "fed up". And finally, the prize - DETERMINATION and BURNING RESOLVE.
Until you reach that tipping point, things won't likely change very much.
How close are you to your tipping point????
