There is a saying – “80% of the effort is simply showing up” and once you have made the first steps and shown that this is something you really want to do, there is no limit to what you can achieve as long as you show up every day and put in the work.

“I would rather live a short life of glory than a long one of obscurity”

Alexander the Great

Turtle’s thoughts
