Certain words left a lasting impression on me while working on this book.
Addiction keeps you from focusing on what’s most important to you.
Beating addiction allows you to fully focus on what’s most important.
This book is produced from the stories of those who beat addiction and won happy lives. Both the author and I thought the word “addiction” didn’t apply to us, but when thinking about things in terms of “I want to quit this, but I can’t,” you find that the word “addiction” can be applied to many things.
Not just food, alcohol or gambling, but things like sketchy business endeavors and toxic relationships also fall under “addiction.”
Now it’s time for you to beat your addiction and start spending time and money on what’s most important to you.
