In the end, sooner or later, we all must face our personal demons whether due to uncertainty, chance, poor decisions or choices or just bad luck.Living With Motivation

I was reflecting recently on the mindsets of several friends and acquaintances that seem to be willing to sacrifice their self-worth for the uncertainty of their net-worth.
