Do you ever feel like all your hard work is getting you exactly… nowhere?

It can feel frustrating when you’re following all the steps to success: staying focused, dedicated and persistent. But still, after all your effort — you’ve got nothing to show for it. No big wins. No lasting results.

We’ve all had moments when it seems like our hard work isn’t paying off, haven’t we?

I definitely have. That’s why I was intrigued when Chris wrote in about his dilemma. He said that no matter what he’s pouring his effort into  — work, relationships or studies — nothing seems to be paying off. No matter how hard he works, it never feels like it’s enough.
