They don’t tell you this in the text books but success can be painful.

I’m not referring to the blood, sweat and tears you have to invest to achieve success.

I’m talking about the emotional pain that comes as you strive for success.

It kicks in at the point when life suddenly becomes exciting and full of opportunity.

You’re having to run at breakneck speed to keep up and, without warning, your head starts to spin.

You feel like a tightrope walker crossing between two Manhattan skyscrapers.

The secret is not looking down and remembering you will make it!
