Why Do We Get Up Every Day, And Try Again?

About The Book

"While others may have all the money and the fame, keep in mind that its you, and the thousands of others like you, that create the real value.
The buildings that stand, the planes that land on time; the endless commitments that are made and kept; everything about the world that works; this is you, not them. They consume the value, but without your work there is nothing to consume. You are the reason the world works."
