Success is not a choice for winners. It’s not even an effect of chance. It’s an result of a calculative process, achieved out of hard-work and dedicationReteish Sharma
We all start our journey with a charm, as magicians and skill masters of our fields but in the course of making our ends meet, in a few years, we loose the sheen and become captive to what we started with passion.
In the same business, where we used to create magic, we end up becoming the mechanics, the accountants and the store keepers. We loose out to the pressures of completing tasks and paying back the creditors and banks, and we simply loose the magic. With a few, structured hand held sessions, I assure my mentees, and get the magician back in their businesses and ensure success is well achieved
