When I was small, I would often imagine myself doing and achieving amazing things. Things that most people would laugh at today. Acting in adventure films on the big screen.

To work on outstanding projects, with exceptional people, for substantial income. An influential, successful career working for yourself […]

Ninety-nine per cent of people in the world are convinced they can’t do great things, so they aim for mediocre.”  — Tim Ferriss Ever feel like you’re repeatedly banging into a wall?
