For the most part, the responses I received were amazing....
Do you feel like you’re just doing the same things over and over every day?
Wake up, get ready, work, eat, sleep, repeat. Or wake up, sit on couch, repeat.

I weighed myself this morning and found that I'm 10lbs down from where I was at the beginning of my last DMD book.

First, we have to decide what our mindset is... are we hustling to get stuff done?...
I've received a LOT of emails from customers telling me they feel stuck after the holiday. They are out of sync and unmotivated. I think we all are... even me.
