Adaptation is what stops failing from becoming failure.
Stop talking yourself out of taking the next step.
Live someplace too dull to distract you from making money.
Pursuing your passion is more work but more fulfilling than chaining yourself to a job you only have to pay the bills.
Success requires is all about realizing the importance of taking action now, even when you know it might be years before a smart move pays off.
A commitment to teaching others has the inestimable benefit of being a continuous learning experience.
