Today's question is a tough one and it's from one of our listeners who texted in this question to 203-512-2161.
To paraphrase, his start-up failed, he was in a divorce, he was in a car accident and when he reported it to the police, his license was suspended because he hadn't paid a speeding ticket.
He's incredibly stressed and wondering how to deal with it.
As James recounts, almost the exact same thing has happen to him.
First off, you're not alone...
"Tomorrow is not dictated by yesterday, but tomorrow will be dictated by what you do today."
Take a deep breath, pause, and try to get healthy. Get a good night's sleep, start exercising, and be grateful.
Try to improve just 1% a day – the compounding effect with be amazing.
Then, James tells us what he read recently while he was traveling back and forth from his recent TedX talk in San Diego.
Here's James' latest reading list:
