You know that you are going in the right direction, when you are so obsessed with your goal that you don't want to stop working eventhough it's Christmas. And I am not saying not to celebrate or enjoy time with friends and families. What I am saying is that if your desire for accomplishment of your goal keeps burning despite circumstances then you are having the right goal.
Go forth, make this day count,
Consciously or not, there are existing lineages of families who have been using a specific success formula.
