down the wrong road. At least 70% of people are not doing what they're naturally cut
out for, but don't know how to fix their dilemma. That's where we come in; we help you get
absolutely clear about your career direction.
You were born with a set of natural gifts that won't change, and even with lots of
practice, your underlying aptitudes and natural abilities will remain steadfast throughout your whole life.
Same goes with your weak spots; they'll always be awkward no matter how hard you try
to improve them.
Whatever your weaknesses, let them be, why torture yourself?
