Highly recommended for novice to professionals alike.
We humans are funny creatures. Whatever we do, we need a reason so that we can continue to do it. The better the reason is, the higher motivation level will be and this directly affects the performance and end result of whatever you want to achieve.
But my question is, if you do have self doubts and temporary setbacks, what is the major factor that keeps you moving on?
