► You Can't Be Your Best All The Time... ◄

There comes a time when we always want to take ourselves to the next level. We want to keep improving more and more each day.

However, there is one thing you need to admit and that thing is that you can't beat yourself all the time and that you can't be your best all the time.

We need to start to acknowledge failure, plateaus and other types of variations, that leads to us not performing always the best as we wanted.

In this video, I'm going to talk about why you can't be your best all the time and why you should start recognizing this if you want to get ahead in life and stay in peace with yourself.

So... What now? Do Coding Bootcamps really teach programming? Watch this video and find out!
