Our Social Reality, and how it’s Holding us Back

At some point in our lives, we’ve all been interested in something new. For some it may be playing the guitar, and for others it may be cooking. We got so determined on doing this, so motivated, that we told everyone about it.

It seems like perfectly sound logic, but the actual truth may come as a surprise.
