Have you ever felt that you lost your motivation and your momentum?
TRUTH: Sometimes I have.
It felt as if I took a punch in the passion gut, and was bent over. While I was on the path to one of my life’s biggest goals-my doctorate-life's challenges, like a ton of bricks, unloaded on me. Now, let me put this in perspective for you.
