For those of you that are unfamiliar with what a double under is, well, I can't really say I blame you.

Life Lessons Learned While Dangling From a 15 Foot Rope

Having graduated with an MBA and having done fairly well for myself in life so far... it's not often I feel like a total idiot, but a couple of days ago... it happened.

Want More Out of Life? Learn The Fast Track Formula of Academy Success

Throughout my life, I've examined a fair number of successful individuals. Being the curious person that I am, I've often wondered, what's so special about them that allows them to continually do the things that they do?

I've seen too many ordinary people do extraordinary things to believe that a successful mindset is only inherited. Maybe some people are born with more natural … [Read more...]
